So far in the book the is a boy named James Henry Trotter and he had a happy life until his parents died. Then he had to live with horrible women AKA his aunts. One was named Aunt Sponge and the other was Aunt Spiker. They are both the worst people anybody could have as their guardian. This book reminds me a little of Casper meets Wendy. They both have evil aunts that are so mean to them but James has two evil aunts and Wendy has three witch aunt and Wendy is a good small which but her aunt are mean witches. This is an amazing book.
