The Wizards of Once

The Week - Junior - - Book Club - by Cres­sida Cow­ell

A thrilling ad­ven­ture be­gins in the first book in a mag­i­cal new series by Cres­sida Cow­ell, the au­thor of How to Train Your Dragon. This is the story of a reck­less young wizard, Xar, who sets out into the Bad­woods in search of magic – where he en­coun­ters a war­rior girl called Wish. Wizards and war­riors are en­e­mies, and Xar and Wish have been trained from birth to hate each other. Yet when their worlds un­ex­pect­edly col­lide, the un­likely duo soon find them­selves set­ting out on a dan­ger­ous jour­ney to­gether. Set in an­cient Bri­tain, in a land­scape of dark forests and wild woods, and fea­tur­ing a cast of mag­i­cal crea­tures in­clud­ing fairies, giants, ogres and sprites, this is a spell­bind­ing ad­ven­ture. It’s so bril­liantly en­ter­tain­ing, ex­cit­ing and scary, you’ll be des­per­ate to get your hands on the se­quel.
