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. After playing a number of religious songs (much to the three’s displeasure), has a heart attack when the three children tell him they are going to attend Groosham Grange, much to their astonishment. When David Eliot is expelled from his boring school, his parents send him to Groosham Grange to knock him into shape. 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? 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.

Meanwhile, Jill had just run away from her old boarding school, and her parents also received a letter praising the school's merits and describing it as a chic college for young girls.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).

Groosham Grange is a 1988 fantasy novel by English author Anthony Horowitz and the first novel in the Groosham Grange series.

It uses simple and informative language which engages the reader and sets the finish of each chapter with the suspense of wanting to continue.

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.
