Brain Snacks: Tasty Tidbits of Knowledge
Roald Dahl based the character of Grandmamma on his mom (not his grandma). Like Grandmamma, Dahl's mom loved to tell stories about bizarre creatures (source).
The Witches was adapted into a stage play that you can put on with your class (or in your basement, playing all the parts yourself).
In the movie version of <em>The Witches</em>, the narrator has a name: Luke. Do you think this is a good idea? If you'd had to give him a name, what would it have been?
