“A chaotically magical sequel to How’s Moving Castle” quoth the cover of this book. It is exactly as it says magical and chaotic. It vaguely reminds me of Piers Anthony in its apparent randomness. Things come together in the end for the great climax of the novel but it is hard to follow at times or maybe I’m just tired. This book demands a skilled reader with a love for fantasy. A bit complicated for a K-8 library a better pick for 7-12.
