    Summary

    In the land of Ingary, where such things as seven-league boots and cloaks of invisibility really exist, it is quite a misfortune to be born the eldest of three. Everyone knows you are the one who will fail first, and worst, if the three of you set out to seek your fortunes.

    Howl, of course, had been born the younger of two. That held no real significance, other than that he always felt like he had a shadow looming over him.

    Summary

    Ingary is in trouble (again), leaving Howl and Sophie no choice but to traverse worlds to ask for help from Chrestomanci, a powerful nine-lived enchanter.

    Post-canon for both series. Makes more sense if you've read both, but not strictly necessary.

    Summary

    Roger was exasperated. 'Julia's soldiers always run away!'

    'Because that's just what I would do,' Julia said, putting out a knitting-needle to mark her place in her book. 'I can't think why all soldiers don't.'

    'Well, make them a bit braver,' said Roger. 'It's not fair on Eric."

    'You only said make them move,' Julia was arguing, when the door opened and Gwendoline put her head in.

    'I want Cat,' she said.

    'He's busy,' said Roger.

    'That doesn't matter,' said Gwendoline. 'I need him.'

    Julia stretched out a knitting-needle towards Gwendoline and wrote a little cross in the air with it. The cross floated, glowing, for a second. 'Out', said Julia. 'Go away.' Gwendoline backed away from the cross and shut the door again. It was as if she could not help herself. The expression on her face was very annoyed indeed. Julia smiled placidly and pointed her knitting-needle towards Cat's soldiers. 'Carry on,' she said. 'I've filled their hearts with courage.'

    Summary

    According to Diana Wynne Jones, Howl wrote his doctoral thesis on Spells, and his first degree was in Philosophy ("probably Philosophy with something-or-other"). Which raises the question: how exactly does one successfully propose a dissertation on spells in a philosophy department?
