Sad news for today’s post: beloved fantasy author Diana Wynne Jones died over the weekend. Her books for kids and teens have a solid following that was, in many ways, like a well-kept secret — at least until the spotlight (or was it the librarians?) found her as a great Harry Potter readalike. Boarding schools in England? Wizards? Family drama? Humor and fantasy? Check, check, check, and check.

You may also have heard of Howl’s Moving Castle, which was adapted into an anime film by Hayao Miyazaki.

If you’ve haven’t yet tried this author, you owe it to yourself! Check out all we’ve got by Diana Wynne Jones.
