Amazon.co.uk now has a synopsis of The Pinhoe Egg:


Magical mayhem is afoot in a new adventure set in the worlds of the 
nine-lived enchanter Chrestomanci. As many people know already, it's 
Chrestomanci's job to control the magic in the related worlds. Using 
magic is always dangerous, and it always has consequences, so even the 
best-intentioned witch or warlock needs help and guidance from time to 
time. Not only that, but there are plenty of ordinary people in the 
worlds without even a whiff of magical ability, and they need someone to 
make sure that the magic-users don't get their own way all of the time. 
Even so, in the village around Chrestomanci Castle, all sorts of magical 
misuse is going on which very few people seem to be aware of! When Cat 
Chant finds the egg in Gammer Pinhoe's attic, he knows he has to have 
it. Marianne Pinhoe isn't sure what Gammer will think about that, but 
she lets him take it anyway. Rumour has it it's an elephant egg, but 
Cat's convinced it's a dragon's egg. Within the safety of Chrestomanci 
Castle, the egg eventually hatches - and at the same time, chaos breaks 
out in the surrounding village. Can Cat and Marianne get to the root of 
the problem, and can Cat's new charge help?
