A compilation of Magicians of Caprona and Witch Week. Both of these books feature Chrestomanci as a minor but powerful character. He enacts Deus Ex Machina functions in each. Not her best work.

Diana Wynne Jones has an incredible imagination which she showcases in this sophiscated YA fantasy volume of two of her Chrestomanci books. I liked this book, but to be honest, I preferred the first volume to this one - maybe because I'm partial to Christopher Chant, and he didn't appear that much in these stories. That being said, it's still a really enjoyable and fun read with surprising twists.

two more stories in the 12 relative worlds of enchanter Chrestomanci. My favorite of the two stories was the Magicians of Caprona, where two feuding Italian wizard families have to join forces to save their kidnapped children.

even though this is a kids book.. its really not. i really liked it .. its a fun read and she has quite an imagination to come up with slot of the plot twits and ideas.. Im not sure very young kids would like this..I think they would lose interest.. but a teen would like it or a tween maybe if they are into fantasy worlds and that kind of thing.. but adults will like it too. its not too simple for an adult and the story really is good.. or the stories..there is magic in here and lots of fun stuff.... Id recommend this series..I read the 1st one and this one and plan on reading more. this book is actually 2 stories about crestomanci....

Caprona is a fun story, but I love Witch Week. Overall, two great stories into one book.

If you like the Harry Potter series, you'll probably enjoy the Chronicles of Chrestomanci series too!
