CPL ReadAlong: The Witches by Roald Dahl – Day 3

Our brave narrator and his pet mice seem to have escaped the awful clutches of the Hotel Manager, much to his relief. However, he begins to notice some strange things about the members of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children : one of the ladies is scratching her head like she has case of dandruff or maybe lice. In fact, lots of the ladies in the back row seem to have a bad case of the itchys. But wait, that lady is wearing a wig---OH NO! And the entire back row of women are wearing gloves--no!! ALL of the women in the large ballroom are wearing gloves!! Can he escape without being seen? Ms. Veronica reads today's harrowing chapters! #CPLReadAlong #CiceroReads #TheWitches #RoaldDahl

Hello! My name is Carlos E. Tibbs and I'm the author of …Myles to Go. I'd like to introduce you to a book I'm sure will draw raves from your readers. My novel - a story about a family who leaves 1962 Georgia for the south side of Chicago - details the trials and tribulations of the Myles family, their lives and loves and the people (good or bad) that make them what they are. Sometimes sad, sometimes comical, the Myles family is sure to make an impression on your heart and no doubt remind you of someone you know - if not yourself. Click the link below for a closer look. Also see the review from WordLovers at the bottom. https://g.co/kgs/VRf8nt. My book is available online at Amazon, Amazon Kindle and Barnes and Noble. Thanks for your time.
