Lots of fun and chaos. I especially liked the description of Zozmagog, "cranky for many reasons, some of them well over a hundred years old, some of them things he hadn't even thought of yet." But the part where Zozmagog and Maybelle are each casting a spell--the things he puts in vs. the things she puts in--is absolute genius.
And such a treat to have Kathy Coville's pictures. The slightly bedraggled Susan is perfect.
