    A Note about Witches

    In fairy tales, witches always wear silly black hats and black cloaks, and they ride on broomsticks. But this is not a fairy tale. This is about REAL WITCHES.

    The most important thing you should know about REAL WITCHES is this. Listen very carefully. Never forget what is coming next.

    REAL WITCHES dress in ordinary clothes and look very much like ordinary women. They live in ordinary houses and they work in ORDINARY JOBS.

    Roald Dahl & Quentin Blake, The Witches, 1983.

    b) Is the story about real witches?
    c) Do real witches wear black hats and black cloaks?
    d) When you look at a real witch, can you see if it is a witch or an ordinary woman?
