it was amazing
bookshelves: middle-grade, recommended
Recommended for: Harry Potter fans, Diana Wynne Jones fans, 8-12 year olds

I just picked this one up at the library to reread as I remembered loving it as a kid. It was, in fact, the first novel I ever got a library fine on, as I lost it under my bed for several months.

A book that tells the story of a boy wizard succeeding against all odds might sound a bit familiar to you, but Wizard's Hall came long before Harry Potter was ever a twinkle in Voldemort's eye. Told in charming voice reminiscent of Diana Wynne Jones, this quick read is full of dry humor and is a must for anyone who loves the Harry Potter series.

***wondering why all my reviews are five stars? Because I'm only reviewing my favorite books -- not every book I read. Consider a novel's presence on my Goodreads bookshelf as a hearty endorsement. I can't believe I just said "hearty." It sounds like a stew.**** ...less

Alliana Vivares it's more of like a twinkle in Dumbledore's eye as it's his eyes that twinkle. voldemort's eyes are more made for glares-of-doom or something than harmless twinkling.
