Publisher's Summary

Glorious new rejacket of a Diana Wynne Jones favourite, featuring Chrestomanci – now a book with extra bits! SOMEONE IN THIS CLASS IS A WITCH. When the note, written in ordinary ballpoint, turns up in the homework books Mr Crossley is marking, he is very upset. For this is Larwood House, a school for witch-orphans, where witchcraft is utterly forbidden. And yet magic keeps breaking out all over the place - like measles! The last thing they need is a visit from the Divisional Inquisitor. If only Chrestomanci could come and sort out all the trouble.

Shame it's abridged

What made the experience of listening to Witch Week the most enjoyable?

A fun story, well written and the editing was well done. The children loved it. But I' don't understand why it was abridged!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Witch Week?

The arrival of Chrestomanci.

Any additional comments?

I found the narration a bit stagey and some of the voices were not at all how I had heard them when I first read it. But it was a good listen nevertheless.

Fun story but unbearable narrator.

This narrator seems to think that the more octaves she can cover in a single sentence, the more she will be paid. Her squaks, squeals, growls and grunts are so bad that I can’t listen any more. Read the analogue book, because it’s a great story when it’s not ruined by an idiot narrator.
