Yes, but I also feel that the new ones, the Tartan Magic books, they're
called, just aren't as good as they could and should be.  My impression of
them has been that she's trying to sort of catch the Harry Potter wave with
the similar theme of a kid who thinks he/she's normal, goes somewhere, and
discovers magical potential.  I do like a lot of JY's books, but I just
haven't found this new series up to her standards.
