Fall 2008 Kids' List
“Can a teenage girl who does nothing much besides read books survive in a wizard's house, surrounded by strange and fearsome happenings? Yes, with a little help from a dog, a boy, a fire-demon, and a wizard disguised as a small boy! Whether or not you read Howl's Moving Castle, you are sure to be delighted by its sequel!”
— Carol Schneck, Schuler Books & Music, Okemos, MI
The sequel to Jones's bestseller "Howl's Moving Castle." Charmain looks after Great-Uncle William's house while he is away, but she's unprepared for the house itself. But she "is" prepared for reading--and that makes her indispensable to the Wizard Howl.
