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!
The Magicians of Caprona
The Dukedom of Caprona is a place where music is enchantment and spells are as slippery as spaghetti. The magical business is run by two families - the Montanas and the Petrocchis - and they are deadly rivals. So when all the spells start going wrong, they naturally blame each other. Chrestomanci suspects an evil enchanter, others say it is a White Devil. Or maybe a different kind of magic is needed to save Caprona
SOMEONE IN THIS CLASS IS A WITCH. 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.
The Lives of Christopher Chant
Glorious new rejacket of a Diana Wynne Jones favourite, exploring the childhood of Chrestmanci now a book with extra bits! Discovering that he has nine lives and is destined to be the next Chrestomanci is not part of Christophers plans for the future, he would much rather play cricket and wander around his secret dream worlds. But he soon finds that destiny is difficult to avoid, and that having more than the usual number of lives is pretty inconvenient especially when you lose them as easily as he does! Then an evil smuggler, known only as The Wraith, threatens the ways of the worlds and forces Christopher to take action.
Glorious rejacket of the story collection set in the
worlds of Chrestomanci. Everybodys favourite nine-lifed enchanter makes a guest
appearance in each tale. Plus man favourites from theChrestomanci novels - and a
cast of thousands!
Conrad is young, good at heart, and yet is apparently suffering from the effects of such bad karma that there is nothing in his future but terrible things. Unless he can alter his circumstances as well, quite frankly, he is DOOMED. Conrad is sent in disguise to Stallery Mansion, to infiltrate the magical fortress that has power over the whole town of Stallchester, and to discover the identity of the person who is affecting his Fate so badly. Then he has to kill that person. But can any plan really be that simple and straightforward? Of course it can not! And things start to go very strangely for Conrad from the moment he meets the boy called Christopher. This is trademark DWJ packed with laugh-aloud humour, insane logic, spot-on observations, organised chaos, and all wrapped up in a rattling good adventure which oozes magic from every seam. Literally.
The Pinhoe Egg
Spells always have consequences and it is Chrestomancis job to make sure everything is safely under control. Even so, in the village around Chrestomanci Castle Spells always have consequences and it is Chrestomancis job to make sure everything is safely under control. Even so, in the village around Chrestomanci Castle, all sorts of secret magical misuse is going on. And when Cat Chant finds the Pinhoe egg, chaos is just the beginning! A masterpiece of magic, mayhem and mirth!
