Diana Wynne Jones is one of my favourite authors of books for children and teens. The next book to read in this series would be Conrad's Fate which happens about three years after The Lives of Christopher Chant. Her imagination knew no bounds and she mixed fantastic creativity with hilarity. Her series of books about the Chrestomanci, a nine-lived enchanter who lives in a world parallel to ours, is one of her best works. This book could be considered the first in the series although it is not listed as such.
