Glorious new rejacket of a Diana Wynne Jones classic award-winning favourite, featuring Chrestomanci - now a book with extra bits!

Everybody says that Gwendolyn Chant is a gifted witch with astonishing powers, so it suits her enormously when she is taken to live in Chrestomanci Castle. Her brother Eric (better known as Cat) is not so keen, for he has no talent for magic at all.

However, life with the great enchanter is not what either of them expects and sparks begin to fly!

Winner of the Guardian Award.

Editorial Reviews

PRAISE FOR DIANA WYNNE JONES:"[Wynne Jones] has a unique record of producing books you can't forget. Every book is different. And every book is likely to be in someone's top seven. I feel we need to acknowledge how lucky those of us are who grew up on her books, and to ensure subsequent generations enjoy the same intense and subtle pleasure." - THE GUARDIAN".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"Diana Wynne Jones could teach Stephen King and JK Rowling a thing or two ." - SFX
