When Auntie Christa spills something from a conjurer's kit on to an armchair; the result is 'Chair Person'. 'The Four Grannies' come to take care of Emily and Erg, and Erg wants to get rid of them so he can get on with his invention. But Emily seems to have turned into a teddy bear, so she's no help. In 'Who Got Rid of Angus Flint?' an awful college friend of Dad's comes to stay, and only with help from an unexpected source do the children finally get rid of him...There never have been visitors like the ones in these three spellbinding stories from best-selling author Diana Wynne Jones.

    " Well, the book was o.k. I don't regret reading it. I might even recommend it to someone. I was bored though, I just wanted the book to be over. The stories weren't that good, and the characters weren't that enduring to me. "

    " Diana Wynn Jones writes good novels. Her short stories never quite seem to make it, though. "

    " There's no question that there are great stories, but they're not as much my thing as most of her other work is. "

    " OH GOD THESE WERE SO GOOD. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirsten | 10/17/2011

    " A goofy collection of three stories. Fun, but very lightweight and not quite up to Jones's usually standards. "

    " We (my kids, 6&8 & I) have been enjoying Diana Wynne Jones books lately. These storied did not disappoint. This book holds 3 short stories, perfect for bedtime, or as we did reading outside on a blanket in the sunshine. Funny, simple, entertaining, and filled with fun imaginative fantastical whims. "

    " A book of short stories from one of my favorite authors. Made me laugh out loud. "

    " A fair little book about magical furniture, mysterious house guests, and lots of grannies. Not really one I'd read again, but nice for one time. "
