This book is actually part of a series geared towards young adults with if I remember correctly, five books. Granted, it's been a long time since I read the series, but I remember enjoying it, and it is a great series for kids.

Granted, the books are now dated (this was before the Internet and cellphones!) but it's nostalgic and in a way refreshing. You don't have to start off with this book, but I recommend it as it is a prequel to the rest of the series. The main character has a deceased mother
Already asked about the half-a-dog thing and nope. Not a chance.

To be a wizard students must be responsible, get their work done, and have perfect behavior. Jack gets all his work done but his behavior needs improving. Marianne has trouble getting her work done since her mother died. Grades 3+

This was a great quick read that can be read in a day. Buy the book and don't put it down.
I found these books again. I really liked them when I was growing up. There was something about them that I could relate to. Not so much now, but good for nostalgia purposes.
