A children's book that adults will enjoy,
By A Customer
This review is from: Charmed Life (Paperback)
As one of Diana Wynne Jones' Chrestomanci books, Charmed Life is merely very good - by other standards it is excellent. The book presents a different and more down to earth view of magic than most children's fantasy, and so has less of a fairy tale feel than you might expect from a book about witches and enchanters.
The plot is twisty and quick enough to keep adults entertained, and will absolutely enthrall children. Well worth reading.
