Heather's parents are the caretakers of the stately home Castlemaine, and Heather would love living there -- if it weren't for the tourists. Every summer they invade Castlemaine, and one day they even trample into all of her secret quiet spots. The only one left is a peculiar little mound that the villagers say is the grave of Wild Robert, a legendary magician who lived 350 years ago. When Heather cries out for Wild Robert to use his magical powers on the tourists, she never expects a handsome young man to appear right in front of her. She never expects all the mischief he causes, either! Will Castlemaine ever be the same once Wild Robert has returned?
This novel for young readers is full of Diana Wynne Jones's signature humor, inventiveness, and charm.

Diana Wynne Jones is the best. The story is short, but there is so much action and fun. In simple words the story is well told. I would love for there to be a continuation. I recommend Wild Robert to anyone. I've been wanting to read this book for a long time. I'm glad I finally got it.
