Archer's Goon by Diana Wynne Jones



This book is an upper elementary or middle school fantasy.  It is age appropriate with nothing objectionable in it.  It is a story of sibling rivalry and mysterious magic.

Howard's family is headed by an ineffectual father, Quentin, an author.   It is led by a strong mother, Catriona, a music teacher.  The story focuses more on Howard, the older son, and Awful, the younger daughter.   They are forced to deal with a family of very immature wizards who seem locked to their community.

The story is cute and it should keep the interest of the appropriate age group.
