Jones, Diana Wynne -- House of Many Ways
Billed as "the" (but actually "a") sequel to Howl's Moving Castle.
Teenage girl with a lousy temper has to take care of her
uncle-the-wizard's house in a kingdom neighboring Ingary. Magic
happens. Halfway in Howl and Sophie show up, toting their two-year-old
child, and they rather steal the show (which I rather regretted). This
was high-quality Jones; my impulse to say "she's done better" is
unfair, given that not every book can be Archer's Goon or Homeward
Bounders, and I was a lot younger when I read those.
