There seemed nothing odd about Luke to begin with - except perhaps
the snakes. If they were snakes that is... David wasn't sure.
Just kindle a flame and I'll be with you, says Luke.
David thinks he's joking, but certainly, whenever he strikes a match,
Luke appears immediately.
But David's new friend seems to
have some extraordinary friends and relations, and some very dark
secrets. And when David enters into a bargain with the mysterious
one-eyed Mr Wedding, life gets very hot indeed!
DIANA WYNNE JONES was born in August 1934 in London, where she had a
chaotic and unsettled childhood against the background of World War
II. The family moved around a lot, finally settling in rural Essex.
As children, Diana and her two sisters were deprived of a good,
steady supply of books by a father, ?who could beat Scrooge in a
meanness contest?. So, armed with a vivid imagination and an
insatiable quest for good books to read, she decided that she would
have to write them herself.
