9780007416868: Earwig and the Witch

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. Earwig will need all her ingenuity (and some help from a talking cat) to survive...With terrific line drawings that perfectly complement Diana's witty, magical story, this is sure to appeal to a new generation of fans.

From the Back Cover:

Her name is Earwig, and she has been at the orphanage ever since she was a baby. That's how she likes it. She has a best friend, Custard, and everyone does exactly what Earwig wants. She never wants to leave, so she makes sure that no one ever picks her. But one day, a very strange couple adopts her and takes her home to Thirteen Lime Avenue. They try to make themselves look ordinary. But they are not ordinary, not in the least. There is a lot of magic brewing at Thirteen Lime Avenue. And Earwig just might discover that she likes it.

About the Author:

Diana Wynne Jones (1934-2011) spent her childhood in Essex and began writing fantasy novels for children in the 1970s. With her unique combination of magic, humour and imagination, she enthralled generations of children and adults with her work. She won the Guardian Award in 1977 with Charmed Life, was runner-up for the Children's Book Award in 1981 and was twice runner-up for the Carnegie Medal.
