Diana Wynne Jones' Pinhoe Egg

This is a kids book. However as an adult and also a fan of this authors work, I have to say that I did enjoy this book. The author has a very good manner of ending stories that always satisfies, and also has a method of world building a completely believable world. This is a part of a series, but from reading it I have to say that you in no way need to read the previous books to understand what is happening.
