Young Oliver Moon has just found out he has been short-listed for the Young Wizard of the Year Award. He just has to pass tests in Potion Brewing, Spellcraft and Broomstick Flying.

I'm a GIGANTIC Harry Potter nerd so I had some slight concerns about this series being a copycat and failing miserably but it just goes in a whole different direction. Think: cackling witches with rotting teeth, toasted bat wings for breakfast, etc. plus a little bathroom humor for good measure. Ideal for the younger set for sure. My 6yo loved it -- he didn't want to stop and we ended up reading the entire 92 pages in one sitting. Looking forward to the next installment :)

Easy to read and short light fantasy fiction chapter books. I'll be ordering done of these for our library - it's nice to have some fantasy for readers this age (that's not just fairies or MTH).
