Kids’ Club Review by Harshit Kumar: House of many ways

House of many ways / Jones, Diana Wynne

I rated this book 5 stars because it tells that Charmain has agreed to look after Great Uncle- William’s house because Uncle William is ill and the elves are going to cure him. Charmain thinks that it is an easy task to but she discovers that the house is all messy. She meets a dog called Waif. She discovers that when she asks a question to Uncle William, his voice comes from the thin air. One day, she meets a new boy whose name is Peter. She went into a room and discovered that there were lots of books in the room and she began to read them. She found a book which has spells and wanted to do a flying spell but she made other spells work and she landed on a valley. She is also is being targeted by a Lubbock. Then an elf comes back with a box of 3 Lubbock eggs and told them that it was in the wizard and that he will be ready to come back in 3 or 4 days mostly. He also told them eggs shouldn’t be touched and it can be dangerous. So Charmain went to the royal mansion to get Calcifer the fire demon. Then, a prince came and said that he wanted to be prince and he had Morgan but Charmain and Sim had evidence so they proved it and he couldn’t be king.

5 stars
