The Lovereading4Kids comment
With terrific line drawings that perfectly complement Diana's witty, magical story, this is a wonderful adventure of triumph over adversity. Poor Earwig has always lived in an orphanage but she loves it there and doesn't want to leave so one day when she is chosen to go and live with someone who turns out to be a witch she wonders how she will survive. But Earwig's ingenuity and some help from a talking cat pulls her through. Sadly, this is Diana Wynne-Jones' final story for children as she died in March 2011.
Earwig and the Witch by Diana Wynne Jones
Everyone knows that orphanages are horrible places. But Earwig has a surprising amount of power over everyone else at St Morwald's Home for Children, and loves it there. So the last thing she wants is to be sent to live with the very strange Bella Yaga! Earwig was left at St Morwald's as a baby. Unlike the other children, she loves it there, mostly because she has the run of the place and seems to be able to persuade people to do as she wants. Then one day Earwig is chosen to live with a very strange couple: Bella Yaga, her new 'mother', is actually a horrible witch.
