Howl’s moving castle

Howl's moving castleHow had I not read this book before?

Diana Wynne Jones draws you into the world of Ingary from the first page as the artful worldbuilding gives you taste of the magic but lets your mind create the rest.  Sophie is a loveable and practical main character who you want to succeed and meets many charming (and not-so-charming!) characters throughout the story.

Once you’ve read the book, treat yourself to the very cute and very funny movie by amazing Studio Ghibli.  Hayao Miyazaki’s take is slightly different to the book, but doesn’t ruin the original.  It’s fun to watch the movie and spot the differences.

Once you read this book, you’ll want to read it again immediately.  Get it here.
