We've all been there: You read a creepy tale as a kid, and then slept with the lights on for a week. But sometimes, stories are even more sinister as an adult. You've got more life experience — and you understand that the "dead parents" trope is way worse now that you are one. Here are some of the darkest, weirdest and most horrifying tales for all ages. In Roald Dahl's The Witches, a little boy stumbles across a society of witches, whose sole purpose is to kill human children, by turning them into mice and releasing cats to destroy them. In his quest to stop them, the boy is turned into a mouse, but decides to stay that way because he will live about as long as his grandmother and they can die together. Heavy stuff.
A witch is a woman in possession of power. She is the healer, the medicine woman, the bruja , the Mother, the crafty Instagrammer. We read about the wicked witch of fairy tale, and then perhaps the teen witch who bumbles with newfound power, and then the mysterious but alluring adult witch. As interesting are the differences in the story of the witch. You can learn a lot about how women are viewed across time and place by way of these witch stories. And it is because the witch is a powerful character as complex and shifting as familiar that we will thankfully never run out of material or cause for diverse stories about these bewitching characters. When the note, written in ordinary blue ballpoint, appears between two of the homework books Mr Crossley is marking, he is very upset.
