A companion to Howl's Moving Castle, Diana Wynne Jones' Castle in the Air was named an ALA Notable Book and an ALA Best Book for Young Adults. In this sparkling tale, young merchant Abdullah purchases a magic carpet-and soon finds that the enchanted rug is none too agreeable. But despite the carpet's cranky demeanor, Abdullah must rely on its help to rescue a princess from a wicked djinn. 'A bewitching romp, gratifying to mind, imagination, and funny bone.'-Kirkus Reviews

I loved this series. After seeing the movie, the book was even better. Without a doubt, I wish that I could see the book version in the theaters. This volume gives us more interaction with side characters and fleshed out new ones, building towards the third installment.

I loved Howl’s Moving Castle so much and was so disappointed in this book. Much of the story really feels problematic: a huge focus on slimness and beauty, characters forcing women to marry them, etc. I don’t think it’s good to excuse it as a product of its time because so many books published before and around this time did not have these issues. I did enjoy all the pieces falling into place at the end of the story, but the main character Abdullah was so one dimensional and obnoxious.
