When Charmain is asked to housesit for Great Uncle William, the Royal Wizard of Norland, she is ecstatic to get away from her parents, but finds that his house is much more than it seems.
Popular children's fantasy author Diana Wynne Jones embarks on her second sequel to HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE with cinematic panache and characteristic wit. Pampered and cosseted, Charmain Baker finds herself dipping into magic, adventure, and much-hated dish washing while caring for the home of her eccentric magician Great-Uncle William. The house isn't what it seems, and soon Charmain finds herself neck-deep in out-of-control adventures that lead way beyond her habit of incessant reading. A befuddled king, aged princess, obnoxious apprentice, and mysterious dog are just a few of the odd and amusing characters, along with beloved ones like Sophie, Howl, and Calcifer.
