ED 411-House of Many Ways

House of Many Ways - Diana Wynne Jones

This story takes place in the world of Howl's Moving Castle. Charmain goes to help take care of her sick great uncle who also happens to be a wizard. What she thought was going to be a simple job turns into a wacky adventure full of wizards and sorceresses, a door that leads to more than one place, missing royals, and plenty of crazy antics. I would implement this book in then classroom as a writing exercise. As the class was reading the book, I would have them write a story of their own adventures if they were in Charmain's shoes. This book is intended for 4th, 5th, and 6th graders.
