As True Fans, everyone probably already realises this, but Diana's final book, 'Earwig and the Witch' came out yesterday. (at least in the UK)
The description given on Amazon is

Everyone knows that orphanages are horrible places. But Earwig has a surprising amount of power over everyone else at St Morwald’s Home for Children, and loves it there. So the last thing she wants is to be sent to live with the very strange Bella Yaga…
Earwig was left at St Morwald's as a baby. Unlike the other children, she loves it there, mostly because she has the run of the place and seems to be able to persuade people to do as she wants. Then one day Earwig is chosen to live with a very strange couple: Bella Yaga, her new 'mother', is actually a horrible witch. Earwig will need all her ingenuity (and some help from a talking cat) to survive…
With terrific line drawings that perfectly complement Diana’s witty, magical story, this is sure to appeal to a new generation of fans
