About this deal

However, on all attempts they failed and on their 13th birthdays, they were converted to the magical side at Groosham Grange. I especially love the typical British humour, like the really awful parents (a bit like the adults in Roald Dahl's books), especially the father who is a real bully and the mother who is just as awful, but this is what makes the book so hilarious.

It could almost be enjoyable except that every time you get interested in the plot, the author decides to throw a cheesy joke in. You may think this is similar to Harry Potter and in a way it does involve boarding school, wizards, initiation, etc - but it is quite original and it understands witchcraft in the more traditional sense (less fun and more Middle Ages style). The graphic novel is a brilliant adaptation of the full novel, bringing comedy and horror together perfectly… Darkly comedic, this GN will certainly appeal to a lot of readers and hopefully they will then find the original to enjoy as well. Me divertí mucho leyendo este libro, cuenta con un humor bastante peculiar: es sarcástico y absurdo muy adecuado para el público al cual esta dirigido. But this moral dubiousness is what made the ending even more interesting for me as a child – it wasn’t all black and white, it wasn’t ‘hero saves the day’; it was murky, it was complicated.Jeffrey was expelled for being caught smoking behind the cricket locker rooms (the misunderstanding being that he was set on fire, not that he was smoking cigarettes). A lot of critics (and Horowitz himself) have since noted certain similarities between the Groosham Grange novel and the newer Harry Potter series written by J.

A wickedly funny story by the number one bestselling author Anthony Horowitz, with brand new illustrations by Tony Ross.It uses simple and informative language which engages the reader and sets the finish of each chapter with the suspense of wanting to continue. Ahora bien, la razón por la cual lo leí fue esta comparación que existe con Harry Potter, morbo para ser claros, y es curioso la gran cantidad de similitudes que tienen pero al mismo tiempo son completamente diferentes. The mystery deepens one night when David awakens to see them all trooping off into the library, where they vanish. These similarities include having both central characters being mistreated by their parental figures who receive an unexpected letter from an isolated gothic boarding school which reveals itself as a school for wizards and witches; having a teacher who is a ghost and a werewolf character named after the French word for "wolf" ( Lupin/Leloup); and passage to the school via railway train.

David Eliot is 10 year old boy who does not know he is a sorcerer until his father recieves a strange letter in the mail inviting David to a special school. It turns out the children all have one thing in common – they are the seventh son of the seventh son (or in Jill’s case, seventh daughter) and on their thirteenth birthday they will have to choose between joining the school or death. Una de las cosas que más disfruto de este libro es que el autor -a pesar de ser un libro para niños- no escatimó en incluir y describir temas bastantes oscuros. The ending doesn't add up, and we are never given the main character's thought process, so it just leaves you feeling like, "What the heck?

Every night, the students also get out of their beds and suddenly disappear from the school without a trace. Sent to Groosham Grange as a last resort by his parents, David Eliot quickly discovers that his new school is a very weird place indeed. Cofradías de brujos, celebraciones paganas, muñecos vudú y vampiros, son solo algunas de la sorpresas que le esperan a nuestro protagonista.
