Description-
  • Grandmamma loves to tell about witches. Real witches are the most dangerous of all living creatures on earth.

Her grandson listens closely to Grandmamma's stories -- but nothing can prepare him for the day he comes face to face with The Grand High Witch herself!

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine The young narrator in this story, who's been warned about witches by his Grandmamma, ends up at a hotel where the witches of England are holding their convention. Dahl reveals his dark side here. His description of the witches' hatred for children makes one's blood run cold; in Dahl's story, once you are turned into a mouse, you stay a mouse. Lynn Redgrave is in her element with this tale, dramatizing all the characters and their varied voices, from Norwegian Grandmamma to the Grand High Witch. Redgrave doesn't hit a wrong note, and she's particularly good at bringing alive the voices of children without ever sounding condescending. J.C.G. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine
