Here’s another great fantasy series: The Chrestomanci Chronicles. Explore the magical world of Ulverscote where you’ll meet young Marianne, her willful grandmother Gammer Pinhoe, and Cat Chant. Marianne and Cat become caretakers of a mysterious egg they find in the attic of grandmother’s house. The egg hatches, long pent-up spirits are released, ugly secrets are revealed, and Marianne and Cat confront terrifying challenges.
