Which Witch? by Eva Ibbotson

Which Witch? by Eva Ibbotson

A prophecy is made that a dark wizard will be coming to replace Arriman the Awful. Arriman waits and waits and when the wizard doesn't show up, he needs to find a way to make sure that his dark magic gets passed on to the next generation. Arriman decides to hold a contest for all the witches in the local town to find out which witch will become his wife. The witches must perform their darkest magic to try to win over Arriman's heart.

Belladonna is a white witch who wants very badly to be dark... but whenever she tries any black magic, she just creates flowers and rabbits. Until she meets Terrance and his pet worm, Rover. She hopes they can help her win the contest.

This book is a lot of fun and very cute!! They say on the front that if you're a Harry Potter fan you'll enjoy this, but this reminded me more of a Roald Dahl book. You don't need to be a kid to enjoy this! This was a great read!
