Wow... I haven't seen hide nor tail of this book since I was eight! Cool to have stumbled upon it. Now, since I haven't read it since then this review will be very short as it will be based on a memory from a LONG time ago. I remember that, as an eight year old, I liked the story very much. I was going through a "girl who is friends with dragons" phase at the time( I had just started reading E. D. Baker's Frog Princess series). I will re-read it soon to give a better review.

Hello. I believe that this is my second review ever on this site. I read this book awhile ago, well, maybe 6-7 years ago when I was still in elementary school. I don't clearly remember what happened so I decided to read it right now. I just sent in my UC app yesterday and I'm trying to enjoy the rest of my Thanksgiving break and trying to forget the USC app which is due next Wednesday if I'm applying for scholarship. I think this book will be a quick read so here it goes! If I feel like it, I sh ...more

This is a very simple read and yet I enjoyed it a great deal. I read it aloud to my young children and they couldn't wait to get in bed to read another chapter. That might have to do with why I liked it so well. It isn't amazing writing by any means but the story is simple and fun. My boy liked it so well he named his lego wizard after one of the characters. This a great for a young audience.

Recommends it for: children with reading levels fourth grade or above, fantasy lovers looking for a quick read

I read this book when I was in third grade, and it was one of those that I would hide under my desk and read when I finished work ahead of the class. Very good, well-written book with sequels if your child loves it. It is probably written at a fourth or fifth grade level, but it's good for reading out loud to children younger than that. I highly recommend.

My children loved these books. They have an exciting plot line that keep all the readers engaged. Some of the scary parts were a bit too scary for the younger reader. If your child has problems with nightmares, I'd have them wait til they were 7 or 8 before reading them.
This was a fun, quick read with an interesting twist about magic. It emphasized how a different type of talent was not valued at school but how it could be controlled and bless the whole community. Greed was present and caught up to. I enjoyed it.

Great fantasy book for third grade and up. It is hard to find a fantasy for girls and this one is very good. I think boys would also like it, but the main character is a girl.
I read this in 4th grade for a book report and I remember really liking it. The plot was really good and it made me want to sit down and read the book all the way through.
This book was so cool If I was little again I would make my parents read it to me every night before I went to sleep. That's how good this book is!!!
Read with my 10 year old, who is a reluctant reader. We loved it. a bit harder to read aloud, lots of dependent and independent clauses.
just what's needed on a cold snowy night - a drop of light fantasy - here's hoping the second book reads as easy!
