This book is adorable! It's so very different to the movie, but don't let you put you off.

Journal Entry 4 by Xeyra at Palmela, Setúbal Portugal on Monday, February 07, 2011
In the land of Ingary, such things as spells, invisible cloaks, and seven-league boots were everyday things. The Witch of the Waste was another matter.

After fifty years of quiet, it was rumored that the Witch was about to terrorize the country again. So when a moving black castle, blowing dark smoke from its four thin turrets, appeared on the horizon, everyone thought it was the Witch. The castle, however, belonged to Wizard Howl, who, it was said, liked to suck the souls of young girls.

The Hatter sisters--Sophie, Lettie, and Martha--and all the other girls were warned not to venture into the streets alone. But that was only the beginning.

In this giant jigsaw puzzle of a fantasy, people and things are never quite what they seem. Destinies are intertwined, identities exchanged, lovers confused. The Witch has placed a spell on Howl. Does the clue to breaking it lie in a famous poem? And what will happen to Sophie Hatter when she enters Howl's castle?

Diana Wynne Jones's entrancing fantasy is filled with surprises at every turn, but when the final stormy duel between the Witch and the Wizard is finished, all the pieces fall magically into place.

I won this in the Bookswap Game at the Dublin Convention. There are two others who would like to read it after me too so it had better go near the top of Mount TBR.

Journal Entry 12 by wingmissmarkeywing at Harwell, Oxfordshire United Kingdom on Saturday, May 19, 2012
Started but not finished I'm afraid. Didn't do much for me sadly so went onto something else from Mount TBR.
Now sending to Marsala who asked for it after me. Can Marsala please send it on to EsmeWeatherwax after. Thanks.
