Chi sono le vere streghe? Non quelle delle fiabe, sempre scarmigliate e a cavallo di una scopa, ma signore elegantissime, magari vostre conoscenti. Portano guanti bianchi, si grattano spesso la testa, si tolgono le scarpe a punta sotto il tavolo e hanno denti azzurrini... tutto per nascondere gli artigli, le teste calve, i piedi quadrati e la saliva blu mirtillo: i segnali distintivi delle vere streghe. Ora che lo sapete potrete evitare di essere trasformati in topi, ma solo se terrete gli occhi bene aperti.

Re-read for our classics discussion Friday 10/30! Still had me giggling from the very first chapter.
I am not, of course, telling you for one second that your teacher actually is a witch. All I am saying is that she might be one. It is most unlikely. But--here comes the big "but"--not impossible. After the tragic loss of his parents, a young boy goes to live with his much beloved grandmother. H

Más como un 3.5 :). El libro me pareció bonito. Es el primer libro de Roald Dahl que escucho sin haber visto antes la película, así que ahora sí que no tenía idea de qué iba a pasar o de cómo se iban a solucionar las cosas.
