Tag Archives: Retelling: Aladdin and the Magic Lamp

Castle in the Air (Howl’s Moving Castle #2) by Diana Wynne Jones

Magic takes a whole new twist in this story!

The Main Character is not the Wizard howl, or Sophie, or even Calcifer! Never fear though, they’re all here, but you’ll have to look rather closely to find them!

This struck me as a rather interesting spin for a retelling of Aladdin and the Magic Lamp, but there were certainly twists only Howl and his friends could bring about! If you liked Howl’s Moving Castle, don’t pass up this sequel just because it’s not focused on Howl or Sophie, you’ll be missing out on quite a lot of magic if you do!
