I love this book! Its one of my fav. Its all about what Christopher was like as a boy. So good, almost as good as Cat's story-- but not quite.

In this volume we learn about the boyhood of the enchanter Chrestomanci (who appears in all of these books, but only in this one as the protagonist.) Christopher
Chant seems to have no magic at all, but he has a rich dream life, in which it seems he can travel to other worlds - and even bring back physical things from other places. After meeting a few mischances, it also seems that Christopher is one of those very rare people born with 9 lives.... However, Christopher's beloved but unscrupulous uncle has some dangerous schemes in mind... schemes that sound a lot more fun than being taken away from cricket practice and forced to study magic and become "Chrestomanci", whatever that is! But, with the help of a good-hearted if dishonest spirit traveler, the Living Goddess Asheth, and a cantankerous temple cat, Christopher may eventually figure out the truth and save the things that really matter...
