Jones, Diana Wynne -- The Pinhoe Egg

Best Jones in a while, I'd say. Usual magical follies, but with a non-silly thread: the old grandma of the extended family is going senile and isn't competent to live on her own. But she's still the most powerful witch in the clan, and perfectly capable of making everybody's life hell. What now? This gets tangled with family feuds, old wars with the Little People, the usual crop of teenage wizards, and the Crestomanci (who for once doesn't know as much as he thinks he does). The tone is a little more uneven than Jones's best, but she's still got it.
