Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Story I loved the book. I was a little disappointed that Howl and Sophie weren't the main characters, but the story was still very good.

Editorial Reviews

"Diana Wynne Jones ought to be crowned with coloured garlands because she is the best writer of magical fantasy for children in this country" Evening Standard"Diana Wynne Jones could teach Stephen King and JK Rowling a thing or two . [she] has a skill for inserting just the right amount of detail in her written words, leaving you satiated but not stuffed." SFX"Diana Wynne Jones is, quite simply, the best writer of magic there is, for readers of any age." Neil Gaiman".Her hallmarks include laugh-aloud humour, plenty of magic and imaginative array of alternate worlds. Yet, at the same time, a great seriousness is present in all of her novels, a sense of urgency that links Jones's most outrageous plots to her readers' hopes and fears."Publishers Weekly"Truly magical - guaranteed to leave you gasping - even hotter than Potter"The Bookseller
