Earwig and the Witch - Diana Wynne Jones, Marion Lindsay A strange feeling to be reading the last book Diana Wynne Jones completed. Earwig and the Witch, aimed for younger readers, touches on the same territory as The Ogre Downstairs where it can be read as being about the relationship between children and those who are meant to be looking after them, and how completely alien they can be to each other. Except this time the guardians are literally a witch and a demon, who have met their match in a girl called Earwig.Frankly, I suspect the other children at Earwig's orphanage might have been glad to see the back of her.
