A magical chemistry set unites the five children in a newly-blended family, and, eventually, helps three of them learn to respect and trust their new father, who is big and loud enough to be an ogre.

As usual, Diana Wynne Jones successfully combines magical and mundane realities in highly creative and unpredictable ways.
