PRAISE FOR DIANA WYNNE JONES:
“…Her hallmarks include laugh-aloud humour, plenty of magic and imaginative array of alternate worlds. Yet, at the same time, a great seriousness is present in all of her novels, a sense of urgency that links Jones’s most outrageous plots to her readers’ hopes and fears…”
“The best writer of magic there is”
“Truly magical – guaranteed to leave you gasping – even hotter than Potter”
PRAISE FOR HOWL’S MOVING CASTLE:

She not only carries on the story from the earlier books (which, by the way, are also most enjoyable), but takes it off in new and unanticipated directions. Rest assured that Jones has a good number of surprises up her proverbial sleeve. All in all, everything you could want from the conclusion to "Dalemark", and significantly more.
Oh yeah, it's marketed as a kids' book. Please don't take this seriously, as stuff like the Dalemark books is far too good for them.
I have been reading and re-reading this book for years and although it is possibly too childish, it does not only interest the very young. An all-time great, with an ending which leaves you begging for more.
