Let The World Sing Along

By Diana Wynne Jones

Twelve by Diana Wynne Jones


1975’s Cart and Cwidder is the first book in Diana Wynne Jones’ Dalemark Quartet.

Osfameron Tanamoril Clennenson — Moril for short — has spent his life travelling from town to town with his father Clennan, mother Lenina, and siblings Dagner and Brid. The family troupe makes a living as travelling entertainers, messengers, and occasional escort for travellers in strife-torn Dalemark.

A brutal encounter at a lakeside campsite ends their travels.
