    ATTENTION : les vraies sorcières sont habillées de façon ordinaire et ressemblent à n'importe qui. Mais elles ne sont pas ordinaires. Elles passent leur temps à dresser les plans les plus démoniaques et elles détestent les enfants. La Grandissime Sorcière les déteste plus que tout et compte bien les faire tous disparaître.
    Seuls un garçon et sa grand-mère peuvent l'en empêcher, mais si leur plan échoue, la Grandissime Sorcière va les faire frrire comme des frrites.
    L'univers diabolique et angoissant de Sacrées sorcières nous est conté avec piquant par Jean-Claude Donda, Jeanne Cellard et Jackie Berger.

    Matilda, elle, est une petite fille extraordinaire à l'esprit magique, et elle en a assez. Tous ces adultes feraient bien de se méfier, car Matilda va leur donner une leçon qu'ils ne sont pas près d'oublier.

    • 2 Février 2012

    In Going Solo, the world's favourite storyteller, Roald Dahl, tells of life as a fighter pilot in Africa.
    'They did not think for one moment that they would find anything but a burnt-out fuselage and a charred skeleton, and they were astounded when they came upon my still-breathing body lying in the sand nearby.'In 1938 Roald Dahl was fresh out of school and bound for his first job in Africa, hoping to find adventure far from home. However, he got far more excitement than he bargained for when the outbreak of the Second World War led him to join the RAF. His account of his experiences in Africa, crashing a plane in the Western Desert, rescue and recovery from his horrific injuries in Alexandria, flying a Hurricane as Greece fell to the Germans, and many other daring deeds, recreates a world as bizarre and unnerving as any he wrote about in his fiction.'Very nearly as grotesque as his fiction. The same compulsive blend of wide-eyed innocence and fascination with danger and horror' Evening Standard'A non-stop demonstration of expert raconteurship' The New York Times Book ReviewRoald Dahl, the brilliant and worldwide acclaimed author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, and many more classics for children, also wrote scores of short stories for adults. These delightfully disturbing tales have often been filmed and were most recently the inspiration for the West End play, Roald Dahl's Twisted Tales by Jeremy Dyson.
