Buttefly, age 11: I enjoyed all the stories but I liked the first two best because they were more interesting and fun to read.

Mum: The Wizard of Earthsea was one of the first fantasies I read as a child and it has haunted me ever since. This second reading was not a disappointment however. Rather, I found my enjoyment of the book enhanced through a greater understanding of the characters and events than I had as a child. The Wizard of Earthsea and The Tombs of Atuan are still my favourites, but I was able to appreciate the other stories this time round.
