The Steps Up the ChimneyWilliam Mary and Alice encounter a magician from another time who gives them magical power. Trigger warnings absent parents childbirth animal death as in a fox kills some chickens an owl eats a mouse etcAs a kid I loved the absolute CRAP out of this series It was basically my version of Harry Potter a trio of city kids who go to a mysterious house in the country full of secrets and magic I was 100% there for it So when we got a copy at work recently I knew I had to pick it up and reread it Andit was still surprisingly decent for a children's book I'll be perfectly honest it's basically set up for the later books in the series so if you read this expecting a whole lot of depth and explanation You'll be disappointed Like at this point of the story the three kids have no idea what's going on They have no answers They just went to stay with their uncle and had a bunch of weird shit happen to them You know So yeah I'm definitely glad I reread this And I'm really hoping we get the seuels too

S and sets them on important tasks The three children arrive at Golden House on their holi. I suppose the premise of these books is very typical of a children's fantasy series a group of three young siblings go on holiday to a big old house where they get tangled up in things they don't understand to do with magic and saving the world I could almost be describing Susan Cooper's Over Sea Under Stone There's the usual big brother character William in this book Simon in Susan Cooper's books; the spoilsport middle child who ultimately goes along with it and does well anyway Mary in this book and Jane in Susan Cooper's books; the youngest child who is often right but ignored Alice and Barney respectivelyStill the writing is descriptive and interesting without being over descriptive To me now the book seems a little short a little rushed but the story is still interesting and absorbing The portrayal of adult characters and what they do and think interests me a lot Phoebe and Jack's views about marriage and their vegetarianism particularly To me the way the children react to these unorthodox ideas is partly what makes the children than 2D characters There's some lovely characterisation that really does make the characters seem like their own age not miniature adults for example Alice asking if a baby being born is horribly rudeA uick and enjoyable read Poses some uestions and sets things up for the rest of the series

Very much an introduction to the series but still a intriguing read with some lovely ideas such as being able to combine minds with an animal and fly or run in their bodies and so travel distances
