The wizard Derk's world is trapped in a tyranizing contract that forces them year after year to host Mr. Chesney's Pilgrim Parties. But at last everyone has had enough. A crowd of characters take part in a plethora of plots, from comedy of errors to coming of age, and at the center of it all is one quirk-filled family trying their best to stay together. I love Diana Wynne Jones' books, and this was no exception. The satirical treatment of the fantasy genre should appeal to fans and skeptics alike.
