Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

If Yertle the Turtle can top the canon of works related to turtle stacking (according to Lisa Simpson and Chief Wiggum, at least), then it's no stretch at all to presume that Which Witch Is Which? might be the best book ever written on the subject of witch picking.

A fairly clever idea executed with exceptional imagination and wit, this guessing-game book from Judi Barrett and Sharleen Collicott asks readers to decide which witches are doing what in a series of colorful, densely illustrated witchy tableaus. For example, after viewing a ludicrously well-dressed sextet of bear witches who are riding atop a fuzzy, veiled dinosaur wearing pink garters, we're asked, "Which witch has an awful itch? Is it the one doing a jitterbug? Is it the one lying on the rug? Is it the one looking very smug? Or is it the one playing with a pug?"

These often open-ended questions keep the guessing interesting throughout 13 different scenes, but it's Collicott's richly bizarre style and compositions that discourage you from ever turning to a new page. Each group of witches hails from a different species (newts, cats, cows, etc.) and seems loosely involved in some central activity (hitching a wild boar to a wagon, quilting, putting on a play), but there's just so much going on in every single scene--weird stuff, Hieronymus Bosch-type stuff, only much, much cuter--that kids will come up with far more questions than the ones that the book asks. Why are those lizard witches wearing armor and disguises? What is that pig witch painting anyway? And the cat witch with the coolest shoes--which witch is that? (Ages 4 to 8) Paul Hughes

From Publishers Weekly

Specific questions and elaborate illustrations complicate this hide-and-seek game, whose "witches" are animals in pointed hats. Every spread presents five queries opposite a detailed full-bleed image. For instance, "Which witch looks radiantly rich?" refers to six white rabbits having tea. All wear billowy gowns, but one drips with jewels. The answer may be evident, but more questions take the investigation further. "Is it the one feeling hot?" (A sweaty rabbit fans herself.) "Is it the one stirring a pot?" (A rabbit in a patched hat tends a teakettle.) "Is it the one eating an apricot?" (The bejeweled rabbit nibbles an orange fruit.) Barrett, author of I Knew Two Who Said Moo, tirelessly repeats the title's formula on each new page, rhyming the homonyms "which witch" with "itch," "switch" and "glitch." Collicott's (Toestomper and the Caterpillars) appropriately weird gouaches feature look-alike groups, from polar bears to newts to chameleons, in creepy swamps or decadent interiors. Her near-identical witches wear patterned garments and make subtle movements; a lion palms a gold coin in "Which witch is a sneaky snitch?" The puzzles lose their luster as they are solved, but Barrett's numerous clues and Collicott's intricate visuals delay that inevitable fading. Ages 4-8.
