Book cover: 'The Four Grannies' by Diana Wynne Jones

An irreverent middle-grade story in the Roald Dahl mode, though with not-so-horrible characters, less revelling in the mischief making, and far less of a comeuppance. Erg’s marvellous invention and his use of it tend more towards gormlessness than a proper childhood uprising.
