In Cranbury-on-Sea Aunt Maria rules with a rod of sweetness far tougher than iron and deadlier than poison. Strange and awful things keep happening in Cranbury. Why are all the men apparently gray-suited zombies? Why do all the children—if you ever see them—behave like clones? And what has happened to Mig's brother, Chris? Could gentle, civilized Aunt Maria, with her talk and daily tea parties, possibly have anything to do with it?Diana Wynne Jones once again has created a fantastic, magical world. Her brilliant storytelling and wonderful sense of humor totally involve the reader in the lives of a lovable young heroine and a villainess readers will love to hate.

In a small town by the sea, Mig and her brother encounter a ghost, clones, zombified men, and one terrifying aunt. How all that actually fits together in a zany and fun way is something only Diana Wynne Jones can do.

"The sea looked thick, bare, strong, and real. It seemed far more reasonable than anything else in Cranbury. But it isn't really reasonable, I suppose, if you think of the moon pulling all that water up and down like a yo-yo every tide. Perhaps life is all like that, full of terrible hidden unreasonableness."
