The Pinhoe Egg - Diana Wynne Jones 2011 December 30Kids let loose in an Edwardian setting to have adventures and get into trouble. Feuding clans in neighboring villages (not murderously, though). And magic everywhere. Such a fun read.***2013 April 24I picked it up again because it was there on the library shelf, tempting me. And then I picked it up yesterday when reading [b:Red Scarf Girl|413432|Red Scarf Girl|Ji-li Jiang|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1174522009s/413432.jpg|2411038] got to be too much.Veronica asked what it was about, and when I told her, she said "It sounds like [b:The Penderwicks: A Summer Tale of Four Sisters, Two Rabbits, and a Very Interesting Boy|266904|The Penderwicks A Summer Tale of Four Sisters, Two Rabbits, and a Very Interesting Boy|Jeanne Birdsall|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1320508900s/266904.jpg|2564478], but with magic". That's apt, since both are based on the older summer vacation stories. Of course, I love it in part for the descriptions of the two main houses. Jones seemed to be quite fond of a good house.Library copy.
