A new look for one of Diana Wynne Jones'' funniest and
most popular novels.
In the land of Ingary, where seven league boots and cloaks of
invisibility do exist, Sophie Hatter catches the unwelcome
attention of the Witch of the Waste and is put under a spell.
Deciding she has nothing more to lose, she makes her way to the
moving castle that hovers on the hills above Market Chipping. But
the castle belongs to the dreaded Wizard Howl whose appetite, they
say, is satisfied only by the souls of young girls. There she meets
Michael, Howl''s apprentice, and Calcifer the Fire Demon, with whom
she agrees a pact.
But Sophie isn''t the only one under a curse - her entanglements
with Calcifer, Howl, and Michael, and her quest to break her curse
is both gripping - and howlingly funny!
