Growimg up magical is not easy, and Cat and Christopher sure know! This book is hilariusly funny, and full of adventures.By the end of the books, you almost wish YOU were a 9-lifed enchanter! Well, almost...

I totally loved this! Jones skillfully creates a believable magical world. She also manages to write completely believable child protagonists. Cat and Christopher, though they are often ignorant as to the intricacies of the world around them, never come off as stupid, just as kids, and they're not overly precocious, either. The books are an excellent mix of humor and adventure, and I'm really looking forward to reading the rest of the series.
