Who says so?
This review by Mrs Mad.
The publisher reckons...
As the sequel to "Howl's Moving Castle", Abdullah's day-dreams start to come true when he meets Flower-in-the-Night, daughter of the ferocious Sultan of Zanzib. Fate has destined them for each other, but a bad-tempered genie, a hideous djinn, and various villainous bandits have their own ideas.
And what do you think?
Gohan, Orange Star High School
This is the best book I have ever read and I wish there was a prequel to it. Flower-in-the-Night sounds very nice.
