black & white titles spine; the tenth book in the 'Magic of Xanth' series; "in the magical world of Xanth animals, humans, and even more exotic creatures live in enchanted harmony - at least most of the time - and anything and everything is possible. It is only natural that Esk, who has both the drawbacks and the advantages of being the son of an ogre and a nymph, is happy to join forces with Chex, a delightfully female cross between a hippogryph and a centaur, when their paths meet on the way to Castle Roogna. When they realise that Volney the Vole has even more pressing worries than theirs, they do not hesitate to drop their own concerns and set off with him to save the Vale of the Vole from the depredations of the demons who have taken up residence there. When they arrive at Castle Roogna, they join Princess Ivy of Xanth, who turns out to be a more than adequate substitute for the Good Magician they had hoped to find. And there will be more allies - an amorous brassie who fancies Esk, a skeleton who can reassemble himself in the most useful shapes and a host of curse fiends, centaurs and ogres. But can they prevail against the malice and magic of the demons?"; top right corner clipped from pre-title page but otherwise perfect copy of this large-format paperback; 287 pages. .
