This is an omnibus of the first four books featuring Chrestomanci in varying degrees.Charmed Life:
This was a favorite when I was a kid and it was still fun. A lonely boy nicknamed Cat, an awful sister, lots of magic, a castle, alternate worlds and a cat that used to be a fiddle... What's not to love?Witch Week:
This was darker than I expected. Magic at boarding school sounds like fun unless it's full of orphans because it's a magical world where witches are still burned.The Magicians of Caprona:
This one's the opposite - full of magic and love and cats and silliness in an Italian city.The Lives of Christopher Chant:
The Lives of Christopher Chant: This is the childhood that Chrestomanci refers to in Charmed Life. One of the most fun backstories that I've ever read. More magic, awful relatives, boarding schools, cats, and alternate worlds.
