Kids’ Club Review by Harshit Kumar: Castle in the air

Castle in the air / Jones, Diana Wynne

I rated this book 5 stars because it tells that there is a carpenter named Abdullah who lived in the south of Ingary. He always spent his time daydreaming. When his father had died, he had left Abdullah money to last his time. One day, a stranger came across him and was selling a magic carpet. Abdullah bought the carpet for 415 gold. He goes to sleep on the carpet but wakes up find himself in a beautiful garden with a young woman, Flower –in –the –night. She never seen a man rather than her father, first believe that he is a woman. One night, when he arrive just as she got taken away by a huge flying djinn. Then Sultan of Zanzib blames Abdullah and throws him in jail. Fortunately Abdullah is saved by his magic carpet and escapes from Zanzib. Abdullah ends in a desert fell on a group of bandits who have a cranky genie who grants one wish a day. In the night Abdullah steals the genie and flees off. He meets a solider on his way and kittens whom solider names Midnight and they travelled to Ingary on the magic carpet. They arrived there and he met Sophie and Sophie and Howl and they went with him to the castle in the air and they found Flower in the night there. They also discovered that the solider was Prince Justin. Then they rescued Flower in the night and they got married and the king allowed them build a house and live in it.
