A magical Arabian Nights tale from the captivating creator of fantasy, Diana Wynne Jones. The dazzling sequel to Howls Moving Castle, now a major animated film.

Far to the south in the Land of Ingary, lives a young carpet merchant called Abdullah. In his dreams, he is the long-lost son of a great prince. This dream is a complete castle in the air... or is it?

Abdullah's day-dreams suddenly start to come true when he meets the exquisite Flower-in-the-Night, daughter of the ferocious Sultan of Zanzib. Fate has destined them for each other, but a bad-tempered genie, a hideous djinn, and various villanous bandits have their own ideas. When Flower-in-the-Night is carried off, Abdullah is determined to rescue her - if he can find her.

Amazing, just like Howl's Moving Castle (which by the way is kinda the prequel to this book) and Howl is just as amazing as ever, although you only realize who he is in the end. Lots of mystery, adventure and humor. MUST READ FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE READ HOWLS MOVING CASTLE.
