Glorious new rejacket of a Diana Wynne Jones favourite, exploring the childhood of Chrestmanci - now a book with extra bits! Discovering that he has nine lives and is destined to be the next 'Chrestomanci' is not part of Christopher's plans for the future: he'd much rather play cricket and wander around his secret dream worlds. But he soon finds that destiny is difficult to avoid, and that having more than the usual number of lives is pretty inconvenient - especially when you lose them as easily as he does! Then an evil smuggler, known only as The Wraith, threatens the ways of the worlds and forces Christopher to take action'¦ Key title Includes PS Section '¢ Diana Wynne Jones is the Godmother of Children's fantasy fiction and has inspired contemporary heavy weights such as Neil Gaiman '¢ Diana Wynne Jones' Chrestomanci series has a dedicated legion of fans and has now sold over 250,000 copies in the UK (Source: Bookscan TCM Chart) '¢ Also the author of HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE, now an Oscar-nominated animated movie by Hayao Miyazaki '¢ 2008 sees the completion of the rejacketing of the Chrestomanci books.
