A lovely book,
This review is from: The Pinhoe Egg (The Chrestomanci Series, Book 7) (Paperback)
We all enjoyed reading this - kids aged 6 and 8. We'd read Charmed Life and The Lives of Christopher Chant (both brilliant) and this is a wonderful continuation of the characters. At the end of 'Charmed Life' we really wanted to know how Cat, Janet and co got on and you can't help falling in love with Chrestomanci and Millie after 'Christopher Chant'. This book had everything my daughter could wish for, animals, mythical creatures (all observed affectionately and acutely) and lucky magical children. The introduction of a new branch of magic, 'dwimmer' is inspired and gives the story a slight sense of realism. Excellent.
