There are good witches and bad witches, but the law says that all witches must be burned at the stake. So when an anonymous note warns, "Someone in this class is a witch," the students in 6B are nervous -- especially the boy who's just discovered that he can cast spells and the girl who was named after the most famous witch of all."Witch Week" features the debonair enchanter Chrestomanci, who also appears in "Charmed Life, The Magicians of Caprona," and "The Lives of Christopber Chant."Someone in the class is a witch. At least so the anonymous note says. Everyone is only too eager to prove it is someone else -- because in this society, witches are burned at the stake.

The children in 6B are very different from one another. Some are the good at everything, others are good at making trouble, and others are labeled as wierd. However, everyone in 6B has one thing in common- they are all in the presence of a whitch! In their world all whitches are burned alive. Try to guess who the whitch is before the end of the book!
This is a hilarious and surprising book that you will never forget!

Diana Wynne Jone's fourth novel of the Chrestomanic series, Witch Week, is a delightful and fun tale that will surely appeal to those fans of Harry Potter.

In Witch Week, the story focuses on a school, set in a alternate pretty modern world where witches are burned at the stake. In the novel, strange events start happening making people believe that there are witches at the school! And boy that causes a lot of problems!

There is a lot of humor and fun in the novel, and Chrestomanic (the character that the series is naemd after), comes half way through the book. Definetly recommend this book!
