The Book of Wizards
Reviewed by Matthew Feliciano (age 8) for Reader Views (6/08)
“The Book of Wizards” is a very interesting book. It is a collection of stories that are all about wizards. I think that this book would be very educational and fun for anyone who is interested in wizards and sorcery. This book is sort of like a book of fairy tales or fables; the difference is that each story in this book told about a character that was a wizard or a witch or someone with powers.
My favorite story in the book was “The Black School.” I thought it was really cool how ten men couldn’t move the metal door but one person turned it into wood and then the three students were able to open it. That was smart thinking!
This was a great book for reading right before bed. Each story was not too long but not too short and they were written really, really well. It was easy to get caught in the story just like a regular book. “The Book of Wizards,” by Michael Hague, is one of my new favorite books!
