“Think what Another World means – you might meet anything – anything.”
– Uncle Andrew to Diggory Kirke
Diggory had many adventures with his friend Polly, but the two of them fought a lot, like siblings.
But this time, Uncle Andrew has a special “adventure” in plan for them.
Background for Uncle Andrew:
1. He thinks he’s a great magician
1A. He really isn’t. He doesn’t understand a single thing he’s doing
2. Blame everything that happens in the book on him.
2A. I’m very serious.
Now that’s settled with, let’s get on with the story.
So Uncle Andrew had been experimenting with some “magic” (it’s all a bunch of nonsense that happens to do something) and makes a yellow (outwards) ring and a green (homeward) ring. But he wanted some test subjects to make sure he was correct.
After some unfortunate event, Diggory and Polly end up in his study and Uncle Andrew decides to make these two innocent children his test subjects.
Long story short, Polly and Diggory arrive at the Other World and after a few “jumps” they end up waking a witch named Jadis, taking her back to their world, and cause havoc.
Background on Jadis:
1. She’s awoken by Diggory following the riddle by striking the bell at Charn (the idiot, but like I said, blame this on Uncle Andrew since Diggory wouldn’t have done all this in the first place if Uncle Andrew didn’t send him here)
1A. And she takes them captive to “jump” around with them
2. She’s very tall and pretty which causes Uncle Andrew to follow her orders
3. She grants no mercy to those to cross her bad side. She likes things her way
4. She comes in on later books, so remember her!
Now the big question is: how do we get Jadis out of London and into a different world?
That’s for you to find out.
I rate this book a 10/10 because, although not my favorite book in the series, it kept me turning the pages. There are some very boring parts, but I promise you everything gets better. And watch for a very important character that comes in at the very end because he’s in all the books.
That’s all for now! Until next time… keep reading!
