Diana Wynne Jones' Pinhoe Egg
A must for Chrestomanci fans
This is one of those books that starts off with two separate story lines that merge after a while. There are some very memorable characters, especially the one that comes from the egg!
The most memorable moment has to be when the egg hatches.
I don't have just one favorite scene, but anything involving the egg and the creature that hatches from it are among my favorites.
Some of the scenes made me laugh out loud.
This is quite possibly my favorite Chrestomanci book. The story is interesting. It seems like there is a lot going on sometimes and you wonder how things will be resolved.
