Earwig and the Witch

Let's be honest, any book with a heroine called Earwig has got to be good! Earwig is a feisty girl living in St Morwald's Home for Children with her friend Custard, where she resides happily thanks to her unfailing ability to get her own way. 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).
