    In "The Witches" by Roald Dahl, the Grand High Witch tells the witches of England how to make a potion called Formula 86 Delayed Action Mouse Maker. Don't shrink from taking this quiz if you remember how to make this brew and what it's meant to do. A vocal slavery advocate, George Fitzhugh's first publication was a pamphlet titled Slavery Justified (), a text reprinted as an appendix in his Sociology for the South; or, The Failure of Free Society. During an visit to Boston, Massachusetts and New Haven, Connecticut, Fitzhugh gave public lectures and engaged in lively debates. One witch that accidentally drank the potion and turned into a mouse is stepped on by the Grand High Witch in a comical scene - no blood, just some green gas emerges. A lot of the scenes are filmed from down below or even from the ground, which can make the impression of the entire threatening world towering over the protagonist even stronger.
