Thanks, Minnow. I should add I wanted the American version but couldn't get
it (in Germany) for reasons obscure to me.

Hmmm. "Shiny" indeed... I gather they're doing reprints of all the
Chrestomanci books in a "shiny" version? 

But I have to confess I rather fancied the way the "shiny" Charmed life
version looked on the internet page. The dragon looks interesting.

I saw it and the other new covers on I've been checking
out the "official" internet page, because of the ad in my copy of CF - UK
world and US world (that's a bit odd, but that's publishing policy I suppose
and more to look at anyway). I really liked the twirling link things in one
of them. I feel I should add something about the content, but I'm way too
tired at the moment. So, twirling link things is it... :-)
