The Serial Garden(2008)
The Complete Armitage Family Stories
(A book in the Armitage Family series)
A collection of stories by Joan Aiken
This is the first complete collection of Joan Aiken's beloved Armitage stories-and it includes four new, unpublished stories. After Mrs. Armitage makes a wish, the Armitage family has "interesting and unusual" experiences every Monday (and the occasional Tuesday). The Board of Incantation tries to take over their house to use as a school for young wizards; the Furies come to stay; and a cutout from a cereal box leads into a beautiful and tragic palace garden. Charming and magical, the uncommon lives of the Armitage family will thrill and delight readers young and old. Includes Joan Aiken's "Prelude" from Armitage, Armitage, Fly Away Home, as well as introductions from Joan Aiken's daughter, Lizza Aiken, and best-selling author Garth Nix.
"The best kind of writer, strange and spooky and surprising, never sentimental or whimsical." - Kelly Link
