About this deal

This short novel is crammed full of great vocabulary, plenty of gaps in the meaning and enough for a reader to sleuth through whilst maintaining a tidy pace and highly memorable cast of characters. Aya hat ihren eigenen Kopf und will ihren Willen durchsetzen; und dafür geht sie kreative Wege und lässt keinen Schabernack aus. Meeting Diana you wouldn't be surprised to find she had second sight (though she hadn't as far as I know).

Writing for IndieWire, David Ehrlich gave the film a C− and said, "While Earwig and the Witch is far from the ugliest film of its kind, there's something uniquely perverse about seeing Ghibli's signature aesthetic suffocated inside a plastic coffin and sapped of its brilliant soul; about seeing the studio's lush green worlds replaced by lifeless backdrops, and its hyper-expressive character designs swapped out for cheap dolls so devoid of human emotion that even the little kids look Botoxed with an inch [ sic] of their lives.I also watched the studio Ghibly adaptation of this after and I'm honestly not sure how I feel about that one either. Hairs stick out, eyes bug out, mouths twist expressively on stick full-front people; top margin is crows on thorny line; spiders sprinkle around spookily. It's probably for the youngest audience of all of her books besides a 1992 picture book and a handful of short stories.

Das Buch ist recht klein und dünn und liest sich mit seinen nur 100 Seiten in einer Halben Stunde durch. This is a wonderful little story, perfect for those aged around 7 to 11 years old although it can easily be read aloud to slightly younger children too who can't manage to read it themselves. The adventures in his magical worlds – for, as every budding sorcerer knows there are many series of parallel worlds – continue to enthral readers all over the world.Unlike the other orphans, she loves it there - mostly because she has the run of the place and seems to have a surprising ability to persuade people to do as she wants. And the cat had no fur texture which, as we all know, Pixar perfected twenty years ago with Monsters, Inc. I feel like there has to be some better books with similar motives, but right now I can't think of any I would recommend instead of this one, so. On December 3, 2020, it was announced that Elysian Film Group had acquired the British and Irish distribution rights to the film, becoming the company's very first film acquisition after it was founded in February that year. The film was released on DVD and Blu-ray Disc by Pony Canyon on December 1, 2021, making it the first Studio Ghibli movie since the original VHS release of Whisper of the Heart not to have Walt Disney Japan as home video distributor.
