Il repentino cambiamento avviene in un battibaleno che conduce immediatamente allo stringato epilogo, dopo essersi dilungati tanto su colorite quanto inconcludenti descrizioni che ricreano il minimo sindacale d’atmosfera. Stubborn and mischievous, Earwig is a likable, albeit irascible, heroine, and her triumph at the witch's expense will elicit plenty of cheerful howls. Many of her earlier children's books were out of print in recent years, but have now been re-issued for the young audience whose interest in fantasy and reading was spurred by Harry Potter.In the ensuing chaos, Earwig breaks into Mandrake's room and discovers he and Bella Yaga were members of the band Earwig. It's probably for the youngest audience of all of her books besides a 1992 picture book and a handful of short stories. Actually, I'm pretty sure I did read the book when it came out, but my memory is pretty hazy, so time for a re-read!

I'd really looked forward to this - particularly as it will presumably be her last, following her sad death earlier this year. Attended by tame hoof-tail demons who fetch his desired menu, never anger Mandrake, or he stretches taller, thinner, "alight with black fire", eyes "red pits of rage", dark fire streams back from horns on his head, his huge clawed feet leave "smoking holes in the floor" p129.This was DWJ's last completed fiction book, published in June 2011, just after her death in March of that year. Mir hat das Lesen des Buchs viel Spaß gemacht, wenn auch die Geschichte an sich recht übersichtlich ist und nur an der Oberfläche kratzt und das Potenzial durch die Kürze einfach nicht völlig ausgeschöpft wurde. Maisy and I were hooked as soon as we encountered her potential foster parents, the fabulously named Bella Yaga and he of one-name, the Mandrake. Diane Wynne Jones describes a skinny girl whose two bunches stick out just like her elbows: 'She has pointy-out teeth and looks a bit funny but she's pretty cool because she always has a plan' (Maisy). Like the TARDIS in Doctor Who, rooms can be bigger on the inside, and don't follow the laws of physics.

Earwig and the Witch" is a sad book -- not just sad because it was Jones' final novel, but because it feels like she never really finished it. Years later, Earwig is a rambunctious 10-year-old who is very comfortable in an orphanage where everyone does what she wants.With terrific line drawings that perfectly complement Diana's witty, magical story, this is sure to appeal to a new generation of fans.

But Earwig has a surprising amount of power over everyone else at St Morwald’s Home for Children, and loves it there.
