Jones, Diana Wynne -- House of Many Ways

Billed as "the" (but actually "a") sequel to Howl's Moving Castle. Teenage girl with a lousy temper has to take care of her uncle-the-wizard's house in a kingdom neighboring Ingary. Magic happens. Halfway in Howl and Sophie show up, toting their two-year-old child, and they rather steal the show (which I rather regretted). This was high-quality Jones; my impulse to say "she's done better" is unfair, given that not every book can be Archer's Goon or Homeward Bounders, and I was a lot younger when I read those.
