Young merchant Abdullah leads a humble life. Or he did until a stranger sold him a threadbare--and disagreeable--magic carpet. Now Abdullah is caught in the middle of his grand daydreams. Waking one night in a luxurious garden, he meets and falls instantly in love with the beautiful and clever Flower-in-the-Night. But a wicked djinn sweeps the princess away right before Abdullah''s eyes, leaving the young man no choice but to follow. This is no ordinary quest, however, for Flower-in-the-Night isn''t all the djinn has stolen. Abdullah will have the so-called help of the cantankerous carpet, a cranky genie in a bottle, a dishonest soldier, and a very opinionated black cat. Will this motley crew be able to find the djinn''s mysterious dwelling and rescue a castle full of princesses?

Annotation:
This quirky YA fantasy is a sequel to HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE. Humble rug-seller Abdullah has always dreamed of going on a grand adventure. After a mysterious stranger sells him a magic carpet, Abdullah, to his joy and horror, finds himself having the adventure of his dreams. Having fallen in love with a beautiful princess, he subsequently must rescue her from the powerful djinn who has kidnapped her and taken her to the distant land of Ingary. Along the way, he acquires two companions, a roguish soldier and an unreliable genie.
Author Bio
Diana Wynne Jones
Dianna Wynne Jones is known for her intelligent, humorous, and decidedly oddball children's and young-adult fantasy and science-fiction books. Jones was inspired to start writing because of her own dismay at the children's fiction available for her sons. Her best-loved books are the Chrestomanci series, which includes CHARMED LIFE, THE LIVES OF CHRISTOPHER CHANT, THE MAGICIANS OF CAPRONA, WITCH WEEK, CONRAD'S FATE, and THE PINHOE EGG.
