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:
“Imaginative and terribly funny ”

About the Author
At the age of eight Diana knew she was going to be a writer, it was as though someone tapped her on the shoulder and told her so. She started writing books and reading them to her sisters. Then she moved on to study at Oxford, where she met her future husband who encouraged her to attend the lectures of both C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. Diana is an outstanding writer of fantasy and the Dalemark Quartet books are good for readers who have enjoyed the Christopher Chant books by the same author. Diana lives in Bristol, with her husband and three children. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

When I came to the final novel in the quartet I was awe-struck by Wynne Jones's deft handling of the ideas across the books. The links the parallels and the cunning interconnectedness of all four books slowly and magically unfold before you. I would give anything to write so well, so surely and so winningly. Every child's bookshelves should hold this series.
This is a really good start to the Dalemark series, followed by Drowned Ammet, the Spllcoats, and finished by the Crown of Dalemark. Well worth getting into.
As with all works of art, some people, who wanted more of the same populist drama, were left behind (me included).
Cart And Cwidder makes more demands of it's readers and can be a bit miasmic - if you buy into this sort of thing you'll probably end up as a contracts lawyer! Sorry, it didn't do much for me.
