Welcome to 'The Worlds Of Chrestomanci' where magic is as common as mathematics - and twice as troublesome in the wrong hands!
Everybody says that Gwendolyn Chant is a gifted witch with astonishing powers, so it suits her enormously when she is taken to live in Chrestomanci Castle. Her brother Eric (better known as Cat) is not so keen, for he has no talent for magic at all.
However, life with the great enchanter and his family is not what either of them expects and sparks soon begin to fly . . .
