Reading Group Guide for Witch’s Business.

Witch's Business is one of Diana Wynne Jones first books (published in 1973). It was originally titled 'Wilkins' Tooth' because trouble starts when one of the characters asked for Wilkins' Tooth as retribution for what has been done to him. Although Witch's Business is very fitting too. The children start a revenge business called Own Back Ltd. to earn a bit of money but soon it gets out of hand and they start to regret it. I like . Jones writings and can recognize her style out of thousands.

A brilliant kids book (and I mean little kids, not young adults... I wouldn't necessarily recommend this for anyone above 12 years old), Diana Wynne Jones draws upon classic fairy tales such as Puss In Boots to put together a charming story told by a master storyteller. DWJ's books stand out not just for their great plot, but also for their language. Just because the story line is watered down for younger readers (or listeners, in my son's case), her writing is at the top of its game.

American readers might be a bit thrown by some of the British-slang... possibly of DWJ's own invention. Not being British, I'm not sure. For example, "Get Your Own Back" is an important phrase in the book which appears to mean "get even" or "get revenge." Likewise one of the major characters in the book is a big cusser, but his foul language tends to be along the lines of "zombie burger" or "slime puke." He also doesn't really repeat himself, so it's unlikely your child is going to walk around using any of these phrases to color his language... and even if he did, I don't think anyone would mind!

I am a big fan of Diana Wynne Jones books, I enjoy reading them even as an adult. Witch's Business however, is more for young readers than older ones. It's about two young siblings trying to make money and instead end up in trouble all over the place. They run around trying to help everyone do odd jobs finding lost items and getting into trouble with a nasty old witch. If you have a young child, read it to them otherwise you might want to skip this one.

Bought as gift, guess she liked it.

This one had me laughing out loud. Lots of great children characters as usual, and Wynne Jones' magic seamlessly integrated into the modern setting. I am so grateful for books like this.

This was a typical Crestomancy Book. If you like them, great, if you don't, this is not a book for you. They tend to be a bit predictable, but that is what I like about them. They are a comfortable, easy read for evening when there's not DVD to pop in and nothing else is brewing but ou don't waht something heavy.

Fantastic!
A fantastic story. Ms Wynne Jones is a master at mixing the world we know, adding a bit of fancy and ending up with believable settings.
