I reread that one just recently, for the first time in yonks! I didn't
terribly love it as a child, and...well, I liked it better this time, but I
still wouldn't class it as a favourite. (And the final wish annoyed me as
being impractical and causing unnecessary hardship.) "Harding's Luck" and
"The Magic City" vie for that palm!

Yes, they're very funny. I prefer "The Story of the Treasure Seekers" to
"The Wouldbegoods" though.
Another way in which I think EN is like DWJ is that not only are her books
mostly rather different, but no matter what mood you're in, you can usually
find a book by her to fit it! At least I can. :-)
