    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

    So far the two of them have collected some smooth rocks, several keyrings, a plastic beaded necklace Janet says is from 12B, and elastics, also from 12B. The collection is in a secret drawer in his bedroom. When Michael or Chrestomanci sets him homework, he usually does it with at least one elastic on each hand.

    "They make my hands feel more real," he tries to explain to Janet, but she shakes her head.

    But Millie understands.

    Summary

    The children—there were quite a lot of them these days, between Chants and Pinhoes and a Montana and a griffin—were in the middle of breakfast when Mary came bustling in. “Surprise visit,” she said, tightening her apron fussily and correcting the pins in her hair. “Mr. Tesdinic is here from Series Seven.”

    Summary

    There's nothing out of the ordinary about ghosts. But when new ones show up, it's time to ask questions.

    -OR-

    Tonino loves learning about Janet's world and maybe Janet too. If she needs help, he's there to do his best. And like the heroes in his fantasy books, they don't need magic to bail them out.

    Summary

    There are rules to magic, whether you understand how they work or not. It shouldn't have been surprising that someone took those rules to the logical extreme...

    Chrestomanci has had a busy time lately. Joe and Roger's infernal flying machine seems almost magically attracted to the roofs of tall buildings, there have been problems all over Series 9, and now it looks like someone has been misusing magic in World 12E. Which is odd, because there shouldn't be any magic in World 12E at all.
