Françoise Mallet-Joris, Herma Briffault (Translator). In the author's note, Mallet-Joris said she worked from only one source to tell the story of Jeanne Havilliers, so maybe that's why it lacked depth. The French title is Trois âges de la nuit, which translates directly to Three Ages of Night, according to Google. It took me a long, LONG time to read this book. Well, less than a year, but still months.

This isn't just a book for lesbians. It's a book for anyone who has ever had their heart on a leash held by someone removed and narcissistic enough to relish the power.

Reviews about The Witches (7):
Any full-length novel by Roald Dahl (we've read almost all of them) is going to be excellent, a mixture of zaniness, intelligence, and wonder. Here we have the familiar contrast of appalling or even evil adults alongside much friendlier and more sympathetic ones, with the hapless child thrown into weird and frightening situations and bravely plunging in.
I first read this book when I was in the third grade, 25 years ago. I instantly decided then that it was my favorite book and I read and re-read it many times. I loved it. I recently took on a research project involving children's and young adult stories and have a long reading list of Children's stories to read - I put "The Witches" at the top of my list for nostalgia's sake, not sure what to expect.

As an adult, I can report, that it is simply a magnificent story. I can see why I loved it so much as a child. Dahl never dismisses the reader (children) as being inept. Like the Grandmother in the story, Dahl knows children don't require extreme coddling. He's not timid about using fear to tell a great story.

Parent's strive to create a safe world for their children. But that illusion is one that all parents must slowly deconstruct to prepare children for reality. Fairy tales are an integral part of that deconstruction. In fairy tales, monsters can exist in a way that allows children face their fears and walk through those fears to the other side where strength, courage and confidence are found.

"The Witches" is a frightening, yet thrilling read for children. Dahl is a masterful storyteller and in "The Witches" he has weaved imagination, fear and courage into a fantastically fun story that has stood the test of time and remains refreshingly relevant for each generation.
Grandmother tells her grandson how to recognize a witch, what he should do if he sees one, how he can avoid being taken by a witch. The grandson listens carefully and keeps watch. She almost makes me believe there are witches. The grandson does have an encounter with not one witch but an entire conference room full of them. He is turned into a mouse. He is a clever boy and is able to escape. Instead of being depressed that he is now a mouse, he and grandma hatch a plan to put the witches out of business for good. He is the one with the ideas and Grandma is always amazed at his cleverness and helps him carry out his plan.

Another boy was also changed into a mouse. His parents are disgusted by him now that he is a mouse. Grandma is very sad that his parents don't love him just because he's a mouse. But Grandma continues to be loving and considerate. She re arranges the house so her grandson/mouse can be safe and independent. She carries him in her purse when they go out. The adventure with the witches is funny and clever but the real story was in the tenderness between Grandmother and Grandson. As the boy/mouse considers his new reality he asks her how long a mouse would live. She is honest as well as hopeful. A mouse does not live as long as a boy would. But he isn't an ordinary mouse so he will live longer than an ordinary mouse.

I liked Roald Dahl before but this book sealed him as one of my favorite authors.

Dark but the droll humor comes through. As with all his books, children appear to be victims and become heroes. Some allusions to nursery rhymes and funny visuals of the witches themselves. As an adult, I loved it and children will devour the fast paced altercations and descriptive language.
Scary story of a little boy and his grandmama off on vacation at a seaside resort that is also hosting a convention of English witches, the really bad kind. They intend to turn all the English children into mice and kill them. The boy and grandmama have to team up to thwart the witches evil intentions.
Seriously miffed at this publication. DO NOT ORDER BOOK IS MISSING SEVERAL CHAPTERS AND HAS DUPLICATE CHAPTERS. THIS IS SOME BULL HOCKY. I got this book for my 7 year old as she loves to read and enjoyed the movie with me. Imagine her dissapointment when shw noticed missong chapters???? not to mention this was supposed to be apart of summer reading. Now i have to find something new
It's Roald Dahl, need we really say more? My mischievous, active children love all of his books and have even memorized several passages. I have 5 children, not all of them really like to read but they all enjoy these books.
I purchased a box set of Roald Dahl books for my 8 year old daughter at Costco and she has loved us reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, the Fabulous Mr. Fox, etc. She heard about this book through her teacher at school and purchased it with her own money.

We are half way through it and I am enjoying it as much as she is. Is the second half is a good as the first and you enjoy Roald Dahl as an author I wouldn't hesitate to purchase!
