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


When the note, written in ordinary ballpoint, turns up in the homework books Mr Crossley is marking, he is very upset. For this is Larwood House, a school for witch-orphans, where witchcraft is utterly forbidden. And yet magic keeps breaking out all over the place - like measles!

The last thing they need is a visit from the Divisional Inquisitor. If only Chrestomanci could come and sort out all the trouble.

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
