Format: Paperback
This book might be just the right thing to buy for your kids while they are waiting for the next Harry Potter book to be released. It has magic, and a weird plot, but it is full of innocence and good fun. I really think that "Which witch" will engage the attention of even the most active kid, and who knows, maybe even that of an adult who is tired to death of "serious things" and needs a respite.

The plot is simple. Arriman the Awful, a powerful evil wizard, has to marry. Unfortunately, he isn't in love, but he is all the same aware of the fact that he needs to have kids to prolong his legacy of terror. The solution Arriman finds is quite brilliant: he organizes a contest in evil witchcraft, the prize for the winner being his hand in marriage. Of course, the local witches are extremely happy with the news, and begin to prepare for the competition. One of them, Belladona, is in fact profoundly in love with Arriman, and would do almost anything to marry him. There is a little problem, though: Belladona is a white witch :)

I think that I have already given you enough details to have an idea of what this book is about. All in all, I believe that this book is excellent, and that your kids (and maybe you?) are highly likely to have enormous fun with the antics of Belladona and her friends in their struggle to turn her into a black witch. Read it, and enjoy!!

I had to read this book in my 2nd year at high school, now 8 years on I find myself picking it up again. It is still brilliant, and I think, is the kind of read you take away with you when you just want to relax and enjoy a book without thinking too hard at it all. Serious adult books are all well and good but this is a must have if u have a spare few hrs to just longue around. It is funny and well written and i know the young (and the young at heart) will enjoy reading this book time and time again.

As a child I prided myself on being a hardened horror afficionado,convincing the babysitter that The Hammer House of Horror was more educational than Bagpuss. Children's fiction was therefore to be avoided at all costs, except when under duress by my primary teacher to read the obligatory titles of the out-dated syllabus. Whitch Witch immediately sounded promising, and although it didn't offer up the much anticipated stake burning extravaganza that my young mind had so vividly imagined, it was the most enjoyable and memorable book of those formative years.Witches casting spells inspired by jealousy and ambition, each trying to out-do the other in their quest to marry the most handsome and powerful wizard of them all; sometimes ludicrous, often hilarious and always immensely enjoyable.....with a fairy-tale ending that even a cynical 8 year old re-read well into her teens! Oh how I want to be Belladonna, erm, I mean wanted!!! This book will weave a spell on you which will outlast your belief in Santa Claus tenfold!

100% in my top 10 books of all time. Because it's awesome.

I read this book every Halloween without fail! Honestly, I can not find a single fault; it's fantastically written (it's Eva Ibbotson, goes without saying really!), has a brilliantly funny and magical storyline and it's perfect for the young and old alike. One thing I love about it is that I can recommend it with confidence to readers just starting to get confident with reading bigger chapter books but may be put off by reading a book that's "too long/big" but also to anyone who is looking for a fun read full of magic that is still surprisingly realistic despite the presence of familiars, bottomless holes and princesses turned into swans!

Just trust me and read it!

I read Which Witch to my eight-year-old son over a period of a week, and we laughed so much every night. It is brilliantly witty, amusing and so humane as well. The old witch's familiar cloud of flies in a biscuit tin will live on with me forever. And as for Doris the octopus stuffed into a bucket for easy transport. Wonderful wonderful fun. Read it to your children, or even to yourself. I don't know why Eva Ibbotson is not a superstar - better than anyone and you see her ideas picked up constantly by subsequent writers.

Don't let the cover put you off. A great story for adults as well as for age 8 upwards children. I'm a grown up and read it cover to cover non stop as I was so engrossed. On par with Harry Potter. I am just amazed I had not heard of this author before. Have now bought a few more of her books and am looking forward to some more superb stories. Though the story is easy to follow, the vocabulary can be a stretch for children under the age of 10, but that is a good thing - so much is dumbed down now a days. Not too scary, wonderfully funny and immensely imaginative, with lots of twists. You care about the main characters. Best of all - a happy ending that ties up all the loose ends. Will leave you with a smile on your face. The book will appeal to both boys and girls and grown ups - no age limit.
