The students in class 6B become nervous when their teacher receives an anonymous note claiming someone in the room is a witch. For in this society, witches are outlawed, whether they are good or bad. In fact, witches are burned at the stake, because that's the law. Since nobody really wants to be burned at the stake, each student is desperate to prove somebody else is the guilty party. As the accusations fly, only the great enchanter Chrestomanci can root out the truth. With an irresistible blend of magic and humor, Witch Week is sure to be enjoyed by children of all ages.

    " It all started when I tried to read a book about Palestine and it was entirely too dry for the exhausted state I'm in (I teach - nuff said) so I pulled this from my shelf. Diana Wynne Jones is 'that' author for me. She's the one I crawl to whenever I need a comfort read and Witch Week was no different. She throws you right into the action in class 6B where someone is accused of being a witch.. a dangerous accusation in a world where they burn witches and those suspected of being a witch. All the kids in Larwood orphanage are witch orphans so they suspect each other, yet which among them is a witch? DWJ does an excellent job of creating her characters as they are all flawed in some way and as you read this or any other of her other Chrestomanci series books, you can't help but notice the uncanny parallels with Harry Potter, almost to the point where you could easily claim that JK Rowling pulled a majority of her stuff from DWJ. I'm so sad that DWJ passed away earlier this year... her positive impact on both the genre of children's fantasy literature and my own life is indisputable. "

    " I like this novel a lot more than The Magicians of Caprona, but I do think it drags a bit in places. It really picks up when Chrestomanci shows up near the end, though. "

    " I read this book for a seventh grade book report, and I've been killing myself trying to remember the title, and i finally did! I should probably reread it because i seriously don't remember a thing... "

    " What an absolutely charming and compelling book. Wish I'd read this as a child, but still a cracking read as an adult, much more coherent and well-characterised than That Other Book About Wizards. "
