** spoiler alert ** I didn't give the book four stars because although it was a quick and fun read, it lacked some character development and it was slightly predictable. The purported main character, Septimus Heap, spends almost the entire book being known as Boy 412. I would have liked to care more about him and know him more in this first book, especially since the series focuses on him. I liked the humor and the imagery of the story. I know there have been comparisons to Harry Potter, but this series has its merits and definite unique aspects of fantasy and witchcraft/wizardry. An overall fun read for young readers.
