Which Witch?

Arriman the Awful, the Wizard of the North, needs a wife, and, naturally, the only woman a wizard can marry is a witch. But which witch will Arriman choose? Warty, wicked, or just plain rude-witches galore enter his spell-casting competition. Poor Belladonna doesn't have a chance.

I bought this book at a used book store and since I've read books by Eva Ibbotson before, I decided to get this one. This book is really 3 books in one. It is more for middle school age kids, I think, or at least older elementary. I was a little surprised more than once at things she put in these books - not bad stuff like bad words or anything - but just things in the story. For instance, in Island of the Aunts, these "aunts" kidnap children and take them to their island. I just thought that wa ...more
Some of my very favourite books, ever!
Out of the three novels in this collection, Island of the Aunts was my favorite. Ibbotson's stories remind a lot of Roald Dahl, good children who are mistreated, bad children who are spoiled brats, a few kind adults and a lot of nasty ones along with lots of magical elements and fantastical creatures.
Which Witch was amazing and one that I have read a few times, I never really could got into The secret of Platform 13, and I love reading Island of the aunts, Eva Ibbotson just has a fantastic way of taking out world and adding to it mythical people or animals that make it real, it's amazing

I only wish I had found out about this author sooner. Ibbotson is smack in the middle of the road between Roald Dahl and J.K. Rowling (and that's a good road to be on). Loved all three--Which Witch? and Island of the Aunts especially.
these were amazingly funny books, which is why i gave them five stars. i love Ibbotson's way of discription and characters. it gives the story its "pazzaz".

I read it when I was little and don't remember it too well but when I tried reading it again it wasn't what I was really interested in.
I've read everything in this book except for Island of the Aunts, so that's the one I'm reading now. Loving it so far!
In a word this whole collection was just: cute! Very fun read, definately a keeper if you have kids!
