The Magicians of Caprona book. Diana Wynne Jones cleverly literalizes this by presenting parallels to each of the major characters in Casa Montana and Casa Petrocchi. and then there was a lesson that came out of the blue for me, that really took me aback. early in the novel i was struck by the bloodthirstiness of the Punch & Judy show that Tonino witnessed - featuring Punch beating his child.

The best spells still come from Caprona, in spite of the recent troubles, from the Casa Montana or the Casa Petrocchi. If you are using words that really work, to improve reception on your radio or to grow tomatoes, then the chances are that someone in your family has been on a holiday to Caprona and brought the spell back. The Old Bridge in Caprona is lined with little stone booths, where long colored envelopes, scrips and scrolls hang from strings like bunting. You can get spells there from every spell-house in Italy. Each spell is labeled as.

The Magicians of Caprona is a children's fantasy novel by British author Diana Wynne Jones published by MacMillan Children's Books in 1980. It was the second published of seven Chrestomanci books. It features the venerable Italian family spell-houses Casa Montana and Casa Petrocchi in Caprona, a small independent city-state and duchy

Where are you going?. Me? Oh, said the Duke. The pockets swooped, then swooped again, as he climbed the steps to the door.

Diana Wynne Jones can create a separate world with amazing internal validity and you absolutely fall in love with the characters. This series make a wonderful gift. The multiple plots within the story line made it all the more interesting and distracting, so that I am not bored while waiting to figure out what happened to the other characters.

Diana Wynne Jones, who died this weekend, wrote some of our wittiest and warmest children's books, from the Chrestomanci series to Howl's Moving Castle. And I think my claustrophobia may partly stem from the scene in The Magicians of Caprona – purchased with a birthday book token, so very much treasured – in which Tonino and Angelica are turned into puppets and trapped in a cardboard box by the evil duchess (although, as I've said before, Alan Garner must also shoulder some of the blame).

I have read almost everything the wondrous Dianna Wynne Jones has ever written. Honestly, these books got me through some of the toughest times in my childhood. They transported me to a world where even the most ordinary child can make a difference; where being a little odd is a wonderful thing, and where, above all, courage, love, and loyalty win the day. I will revisit this world again and again, and will be reading it to my own children one day. RIP Dianna Wynne Jones. Thank you for the incredible world you wove for me and for children everywhere who needed to know they matter.

I'm a big fan of the author, but this book left me feeling cheated and quite a bit irritated. Unlike most of her books, this one felt like a badly written first draft. The author seems to have a fascination with everything Italian (so do I) but she fills every page with long segments of descriptions of Italian culture that is rather boring.

The people in the book are maddening underdeveloped. I have precious little idea what Tonino and Paolo really look like or the difference between Angelica and Renata's personalities. Benvenuto is the only creature with a well defined personality. The rest of the book drowns in a multitude of aunts with no apparent use other than create an atmosphere of chaos that seems stereotypical and ceased to be charming fairly quickly. The villain of the book was apparent at the very first mention, so the book really felt like following the lives of incredible stupid magicians who couldn't see what was apparent under their noses. (The subplot with the two lovers you could see coming for miles.)

And no, I'm not put off by her books. She really is a very gifted writer, and I am already immersed in another of her books.

I adore her work. This was a particularly lovely book in the series. I love that it has a foothold on realism and the humor is utterly charming. I can read them over and over and over.

This story is one I listened to as a kid. It's a beautiful story about two people caught between very different families. It's bright, magical, intriguing, and entertaining story! It will definitely remind you of Romeo and Julie but the ending is much better! It's a great read!

Tonino is a boy from a magical family who does not know spells. Angelica is also from a magical family and messes spells up. These feuding families always fight, but no one knows why. This is an enticing story I'm sure you will love very much!!!! I wish there was more!!!!!! ????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Diana Wynne Jones is a master at creating fabulous worlds, and the one in this book is no exception. The characters sparkle, and the magic system employed by the two main families is so clever and inventive. The cats are charming and give a big assist to the humans in achieving a joyous ending. There is a touch of Romeo and Juliet without the tragedy and idiocy, and with lots of DWJ's trademark delightful humor---and of course, Chrestomanci! Do not miss this one!
