‘Quite simply the best writer of magic there is’ Neil Gaiman ‘Truly magical . . . Guaranteed to leave you gasping’ The Bookseller ‘She is the best writer of magical fantasy for children’ Evening Standard In this beloved modern classic, young Sophie Hatter from the land of Ingary catches the unwelcome attention of the Witch of the Waste and is put under a spell… Deciding she has nothing more to lose, Sophie makes her way to the moving castle that hovers on the hills above her town, Market Chipping.

But the castle belongs to the dreaded Wizard Howl, whose appetite, they say, is satisfied only by the souls of young girls… There Sophie meets Michael, Howl’s apprentice, and Calcifer the fire demon, with whom she agrees a pact.

Her entanglements with Calcifer, Howl and Michael and her quest to break her curse come alive with Diana Wynne Jones’s unique combination of magic, humour and imagination. From one of the most beloved, bestselling and award-winning fantasy writers of all time.
