Y como dicen en la Granja Groosham: Un libro que les recomiendo ampliamente para pasar un buen rato. Aug 12, Chris Horsefield rated it it was ok. The characters in this book are stereotypical and flat–you’ve got the fat kid who seems like he will be a bigger secondary character but then disappears halfway through the story. Then there’s the tomboy girl best friend that doesn’t really do anything. I never bonded with the main character, and felt like he was just a puppet of the author, not a real person.
Let’s face it, we read books to escape not to follow a lifeless boy groosjam decisions make no sense.

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? It could almost be enjoyable except that every time you groksham interested in the plot, the author decides to throw a cheesy joke in. He also uses a couple characters at random points grooshwm the book to expound upon the horrors of Christianity–one character is a priest that Horowitz treats with a negative bias that completely breaks the narration.
Then there is the teacher’s soliloquy about how Christmas was never a Christian holiday and still isn’t.
They just don’t fit with the book or the narration. It’s like the author had a point to drive home and his treatment of it is awkward and lopsided. Feb 09, Kate Treatman-clark rated it really liked it.
Return to Groosham Grange: The Unholy Grail
David Eliot is 10 year old boy who does not know he is a sorcerer until his father recieves grangf strange letter in the mail inviting David to a special school. David’s parents are far worse than the Dursleys, and so Groosham Grange makes a welcome change for David, except that troosham are clearly strange things going on there.
Students disappear from th Anthony Horowitz wrote Groosham Grange before the Harry Potter series came out, yet it is hard to read Groosham without comparing it to Harry Grosoham. Students disappear from the library, and the teachers don’t seem to be human.
Groosham Grange is filled with puns and oddball humor- grooham Anthony Horowitz staple. When I troosham Anthony Horowitz a few years ago, he said that David Eliot was the character most like himself, and that David’s bad report cards from school were based on bad report cards that Anthony himself had received as a boy.
I recommend this book! Sep 24, Riona Daly rated it really liked it.

On route to his new school, he befriends Jill and Jeffrey and through their discussion frange seems that they had each received a letter with differing information to portray this school ideally for their parents. The experience of getting to Groosham Grange was a terrifying and eye opening journey for each child.
Upon arrival, they had a pact made to stick together in order to escape. Their fears increased rapidly when they met their teachers, none of which seemed ordinary and after different discoveries their alarm escalated that things were not normal in the school. Through several incidents, findings, ease droppings, Jill and David plotted their escape for help as they knew they grangd in a place where everything was abnormal.
However, on all attempts they failed and on their 13th grxnge, they were converted to the magical side at Groosham Grange. This book would be best suited to children age nine and grooeham. It uses simple and informative language which engages the reader and sets the finish of each chapter with the suspense of wanting to continue. It would be a very appropriate book to aid in creative writing as the story is very imaginative through unusual events and unique characters.
It is based around a school which grolsham allow children to relate to it easily, therefore engaging their attention. View all 9 comments. Aug 21, Saar The Book owl rated it liked it Shelves: I loved this book when I was a child of about 11 years old an I always wanted to re – read it. Byt maybe I shouldn’t have done that, because it has lost his magic.
I always looked forward to Fridays when the teacher was reading us from this book, but graneg I couldn’t wait to finish it. Not because of the magic, but because of the plain and simple writing. I love Anthony Horowitz, but sometimes you need to read books for children when you’re a child.

Logan gave it 4 stars, J. You can tell that Horowitz is a screen writer; there were so many passages at the beginning that read like a movie.
Whenever we’d tell someone else about this book they’d say, “Now what movie was this? And the whole thing was a bit demented.
David Eliot, after being kicked out of his private school is sent to a new private school, Groosh I picked this for a read-aloud for Logan 10J. David Eliot, after being kicked out of his private school is sent to a new private grage, Groosham Grange.
They only get one day of vacation a year, and he and his two friends immediately start to become suspicious about the staff and other strange events. I can’t say whether we’ll continue this series. I’m a little bothered that David, the main character hasn’t decided whether he’ll be practicing black magic or white magic. Quote from the book–this is Mr. Kilgraw, grooshm vampire grooshak to David to convince him to join grooaham in their witch coven school: We are, frankly, evil Teagle have won awards for being evil But what’s so bad about grsnge evil?
We’ve never dropped an atom bomb on anyone. We’ve never polluted the environment or experimented on animals or cut back on granve programs for the disadvantaged. Our evil is rather agreeable. Why do you think there are so many books and movies about us? It’s because people like us.
We are actually rather pleasantly evil. This book is like Harry Potter, but more brutal and wickedly funny. This tale is about David, who comes from a household comprising a very brutal and boorish dad.
David has six older siblings, though we never meet any of them, making him the seventh son of the seventh son. After being expelled again from school, he receives an invitation to attend an unusual school located on an island.
He is practically forced to attend by his father and the story goes from there.
The humour is wicked and I am n This book is like Harry Potter, but more brutal and wickedly funny. The humour is wicked and I am not sure about the early bits of humour, which seem to revolve around extreme forms of domestic violence. However, when I did finish, I scoured the library to see if they had the next one in the series with no luck! It’s about and so pagesand yet it took me weeks to finish. I kept putting it down and picking it back.
I literally had to make myself finish. They parents were horrible! That, who is wheel chairbound, was very abusive physically and verbally to both David and his mother.
