Howl's Moving Castle
Hayao Miyazaki’s Academy Award–nominated movie introduced the Wizard Howl to a legion of new fans—now they can devour the novel that was its inspiration and take a magic carpet ride through the companion novel! When the Witch of the Waste comes to Sophie Hatter’s store and turns her into an old woman, Sophie’s life finally starts to get interesting. Soon Sophie is rushing into the Wizard Howl’s moving castle, making a deal with a fire demon in order to escape the spell she’s under, and at the same time discovering that someone else is burdened by a malignant spell: the Wizard Howl, himself.
