Publisher Description

Cat Chant and Marianne Pinhoe have discovered something exciting—something truly precious, very strange, and valuable. An egg.

An egg that has been hidden away in an attic for who-knows-how-many years. An egg protected by some strong “Don't Notice” spells. An egg that Marianne gives to Cat, even though he lives at nearby Chrestomanci Castle. Chrestomanci himself, the strongest enchanter in the world, is sure to be interested in the egg—and interference from the Big Man is the last thing Marianne's family of secret rogue witches wants.

But how much longer can the Pinhoes keep their secrets? Gammer, the leaderof the clan, has gone mad, a powerfulbad luck spell is wreaking havoc, and there's an unexplained plague of frogs.Not to mention the mysterious barrierCat finds in the forest.

Marianne and Cat may be the only two who can set things right. But first Marianne must accept her own powerful magic, and Cat must uncover the secrets behind the mystical Pinhoe Egg.

In this new Chrestomanci book, Diana Wynne Jones is at her most magical.

What a wonderful book!

One of Diana Wynne Jones's very best, and that is saying quite a lot.

Great book

I read The Pinhoe Egg when I was around eleven years old, in that awkward stage where you're not really inclined to read children's books anymore, but aren't quite ready for the young adult books. It was a perfect in-between. Diana Wynne Jones is a brilliant author, and I still enjoy this book now; there was just enough romance and driving plot line to make it interesting, while keeping it child appropriate and magical. I would definitely recommend this and any of Diana Wynne Jones' books to everyone.
