About this deal

Decided to read this after watching the movie, because I was wondering both if there were more details here than in the movie and how loyal the movie was to the book. There are questions left unanswered in the book and the author's death last year sadly means these will have to remain so.

the ending is quite abrupt, but as wynne jones was ill and this was published posthumously, i think that's wholly forgivable. This book is about a girl who gets adopted by a witch who is not very nice to her and I wouldn’t want children to think that is what it is like after getting adopted! It does start with an added scene of Earwig's mom taking her to the orphanage while being chased and there are two brief additional plot lines but neither really brings anything interesting to the story and seem tacked on.With the help of the talking cat, Earwig puts a spell on herself so the witch can never do anything to her, including give her worms. Her new 'mother' is actually a wicked witch, and Earwig will need all her ingenuity and talent (and some help from a talking cat) if she is to survive.
