    This was one of my absolute favorites when I was littledark wizard holding a tournament for potential brides Hell yes I reread this recently thinking it couldn t possibly be as great as I remembered, but it was Highly recommend to all baby goths or grown goths who want their black hearts to spin up in a haze of slightly grotesque mist and sprout happy bat wings.

    This was just a ton of fun Ibbotson is like a tamer Roald Dahl, with a twist of Monty Python The part about the rats, though That was pure Stephen King shudder

    I was pleasantly surprised by this quick read My daughter told me I HAD to read it, after she had read and enjoyed it herself So I took it along on a long train trip, and read it in one sitting While Ibbotson will never win any awards for character development, she does have a way with both words and plot her turns of phrase continually gave me pleasure, and her silly plot made me laugh out loud several times, drawing bemused looks from my fellow train passengers A good book for younger mid I was pleasantly surprised by this quick read My daughter told me I HAD to read it, after she had read and enjoyed it herself So I took it along on a long train trip, and read it in one sitting While Ibbotson will never win any awards for character development, she does have a way with both words and plot her turns of phrase continually gave me pleasure, and her silly plot made me laugh out loud several times, drawing bemused looks from my fellow train passengers A good book for younger middle grade readers who like their fantasy with a strong dose of humor

    This is this is the jewel of my childhood My mum was just telling me the other day how, when I was younger about 5 or 6, I think , there was a book I used to love I would always read and reread and reread it again constantly, apparently Though I haven t read this book in years and YEARS, I recently found it in a box in the attic and thought OMG this is the book mum keeps telling I used to love and decided to read it again.Unsurprisingly enough, I still love it It brought back many This is this is the jewel of my childhood My mum was just telling me the other day how, when I was younger about 5 or 6, I think , there was a book I used to love I would always read and reread and reread it again constantly, apparently Though I haven t read this book in years and YEARS, I recently found it in a box in the attic and thought OMG this is the book mum keeps telling I used to love and decided to read it again.Unsurprisingly enough, I still love it It brought back many great memories and made me tear up a little aha But yes, if the previous didn t explain how great this book is, I ll say it again This book it great I love it Read it

    Re reading is not among my inclinations or priorities However, I had to make an exception for Which Witch I read it first about 20 years ago, and I liked it so much that I didn t forget the small details for a long time But recently I have had the urge to revisit past favorites That s why I broke my habits and read this book again The author s style is ebullient and twisty Her imagination was spot on She knew, by instinct, what was appealing and whimsical The book is not of the fantasy Re reading is not among my inclinations or priorities However, I had to make an exception for Which Witch I read it first about 20 years ago, and I liked it so much that I didn t forget the small details for a long time But recently I have had the urge to revisit past favorites That s why I broke my habits and read this book again The author s style is ebullient and twisty Her imagination was spot on She knew, by instinct, what was appealing and whimsical The book is not of the fantasy genre The world is real And though there are magical people in it, there are no portals to other dominions The magical creatures and wizards and what have yous keep to themselves, mostly They don t look for a fight, or a battlefield to settle grievances There is little world building, which is what attracted me towards this delightful and slim and lean book There is no bloating, no extra filler It s rare to find a quick and memorable read Which witch is definitely a work that manages to combine these two ascriptions I managed to find one plot hole here, about the oldest witch being eligible for the contest And I thought Arriman s volte face towards Sir Simon unlikely He, who never showed signs of guile, manages to come up with a plan out of the blue These are minor nitpicks This is an under appreciated book, both by children and adults Among all quick reads, this book hassubstance than most It has fallen into semi anonymity But I have the feeling it will never go out of print, as there always will be people to pass on the fact that the book is a keeper

    It s hilarious, I was laughing so hard while reading it It s like a parody of all the today s YA paranormal romances yeah I know it isn t the intention of the author just look at the year when it was written, but still. If I m to be fair, this book doesn t really deserve four stars, but I m feeling generous So what Does it matter if it s predictable I mean it didn t stop me from laughing out loud, so who cares

    Hilariously dark and clever, with surprisingly well thought out and realized characters The concept of a dark wizard holding a The Bachelor style contest to choose his bride to be from the assorted local witches sounded interesting enough, but the execution and comedic timing were wonderful Light hearted with several dark twists throughout, definitely a fun read

    Delightful fun Never before have I been charmed by a bat making up stories about his family when chatting to a young witch or felt maternal towards an orphaned kraken who just wants someone to care for him Nor have I seen a German princess complaining because a witch turned her into a penguin, not a swan or maiden aunt mermaids haranguing their part human niece Ibbotson has created this world that makes magic into such an everyday part of life It s a bit like
