Cover to Cover with Howl’s Moving Castle

I first read Howl’s Moving Castle when I was twelve or thirteen, and I re-read it this year after (finally) watching the Hayao Miyazaki film adaptation. Diana Wynne Jones is classic fantasy reading for middle-grade readers – but it holds up for readers of all ages. I suggest the Chrestomanci series for younger readers and Hexwood for older, but Howl’s Moving Castle lands straight in the middle.
