The Cottage is the eleventh chapter of The Black Cauldron. Threats from supernatural beings whose purposes are unguessed give way to the disclosure of a strange connection with the hero.
PlotOrddu invited the Companions to be transformed into toads, the delights of which process the weird witch extolled at length. Soon two other enchantresses, Orwen and Orgoch, appeared round the side of the cottage to discuss the question of "why toads?"; Orgoch smacked her lips inside her hood at the idea, while Orwen praised Taran's creative dispatching of the Huntsmen of Annuvin who had been pursuing the group.
