Publisher Description

His father and uncles are enchanters, his mother a powerful sorceress, yet nothing seems magical about Christopher Chant except his dreams. Night after night, he climbs through the formless Place Between and visits marvelous lands he calls the Almost Anywheres. Then Christopher discovers that he can bring real, solid things back from his dreams. Others begin to recognize the extent of his powers, and they issue an order that turns Christopher's life upside down: Go to Chrestomanci Castle to train to be the controller of all the world's magic.

The Lives of Christopher Chant is the adventure-filled story of the boyhood of Chretomanci, the famous magician who also appears in Charmed Life, Witch Week, and The Magicians of Caprona.

Perfectly magical

This is one of my favorites by Jones, especially within the Chrestomanci series. The characters are lovable and well-developed and the story is magical as always. This book was even better after reading "Charmed Life", since it gives the complete back story to most of the characters mentioned in the first and subsequent Chrestomanci books.

Magic with wit

If Harry Potter left you sad and depressed, here's the bright side of magic! Dianna Wynne Jones had a very sad childhood, but she worked though it and became a very happy adult. I guess it show in her novels. Her heroes are usually young teens facing a arsh fate and reaching hapiness by their own will and actions.
She remembers perfectly how it is to be a child, and what responsibilities adults are supposed to fulfill. She has the wildest imagination and creates worlds so real I wish I could visit some.I would totally put her work in every hands, from early teens to adults.
