Miranda Richardson's interpretation of the Grand High Witch in the audiobook was absolutely terrifying...and I am a grown woman! Although I appreciated the perfectly-timed sound effects throughout the audiobook (some are hilarious), I just couldn't get beyond that horrifying witch voice. Share this one with only the bravest of kiddos.
