Read in June, 2009

I read this without knowing that this was part of a series. It was good as a stand alone book. Rich in imagery and creativity, this is worth the read.

Marianne's Gammer (grandma - with a magical bent) has gone batty, her family is holding emergency councils and bickering amongst themselves, she's left chasing a cat named Nutcase who can walk through walls and trying to end a magical feud with another witch clan. Meanwhile the enchanters up at the castle are drawn into the intrigue and all is satisfactorily brought to a close; where griffins, unicorn, and magical creatures spring out of the woodwork, literally.
