About the Author:

Pat Hutchins, one of seven children, was born in Yorkshire, England, and grew up in the surrounding countryside, which she still loves. At a very early age she knew that she wanted to be an artist and was encouraged by an elderly couple who would give her a chocolate bar for each picture she drew. A local art school offered her a scholarship and she studied there for three years, continuing her training at Leeds College of Art, where she specialized in illustration. Her career in the children's book field began with the highly acclaimed Rosie's Walk, a 1968 ALA Notable Book. Since then she has written five novels and created more than twenty-five picture books. She was awarded England's prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal in 1974 for The Wind Blew. Pat Hutchins lives with her husband in London, England.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-- When identical twins Ella and Emily are invited to a Halloween party, they decide to dress as witches. As the party progresses, readers will have fun deciding "which witch is which" by closely watching the games the boys and girls play, the food they eat ("Cowboy chose strawberry, Ella the same"), and colors they choose. The party comes to festive finale with the thematic question, "Which witch is which?" Deductive reasoning is cleverly encased in the vibrance and joy of a party which is a sure way to attract the intended audience. Eyes will be riveted to the vivacious watercolor illustrations which fill the pages with festive activity. Stimulating throughout, they do not overwhelm the slight text, or take over the general page layout. Ethnic and cultural categories are well represented. The story flows smoothly from the beginning game of tug of war to the final front-door goodbyes. Earliest readers will be able to manage the vocabulary nicely. Again, Hutchins exhibits her mastery of combining concept, mental stimulation, and visual interest to create a well-integrated, entertaining book for young readers and listeners. --Mary Lou Budd, Milford South Elementary School, OH
