I remember picking up “Dogsbody” from the Inverness library many years back, and moving from there through her back catalog. “Dogsbody” is always going to be my favourite, but the Crestomanci series was a close second. I read it in a completely random order, gathering up whatever they had on the shelves that day. I still pick up her books as soon as I see her name on the cover.
She was, and still is, one of the greatest children’s fantasy writers and was a huge inspiration to everyone from JK Rowling to Hayao Miyazaki (who adapted her book “Howl’s Moving Castle” into an anime movie).
I will miss her.
