I rated this book 5 stars because it tells about three kids named Sophie, Lettie and Martha. Sophie was the oldest of all the daughters. They lived with their parents in market chipping, a town in the magical kingdom of Ingary but when their mother died, their father married a woman named Fanny. Then their father died and Fanny separated their kids. Sophie would work in a hat shop, Lettie would work in a cake shop and Martha would live with a woman. Then there was a castle that all people were afraid of. It belonged to a wizard called Howl. The people of the town were also afraid of the witch of the waste. One day, she discovers that she is in a horrid spell which transforms her into an old lady. She then decides to see the castle but when she went inside, she meets a new boy named Michael. He is a nice boy. She also meets a fire demon and she decides to strike a bargain to remove the spell. She then decides to help clean the house for Howl. One Day, they also meet Howl’s nephews. Their names were Megan and Mari. Then Sophie has a new dog, which is a dog man. Then, the witch of the waste figured out where the castle so they moved to Sophie’s house and they decided to open a flower shop.
