The Pinhoe Egg by Diana Wynne Jones
A Chrestomanci Book
I love the Chrestomanci books. I think they are some of the fantasy novels for children that have been written. This is the final Chrestomanci story by Diana Wynne Jones. It is also the longest of all the books. It tells the story of Cat, a young nine-life enchanter who will one be the Chrestomanci, and of Marianne, the next Gummer of her family. Together they have to work to stop Gummer Pinhoe from cursing the Farleigh family, raise a baby griffin, and free the creatures trapped in the Woods.
