Product Details


Praise for Wizardmatch:
“A young, biracial wizard struggles between fighting for her dreams and cheering on her family in this humorous and stirring fantasy.”—Kirkus Reviews

“With over-the-top dialogue and an appealing cartoonish quality, middle-grade fantasy adventure fans won’t want to miss the fun, intrigue, and clever scheming at Pomporromp Castle.”—Booklist

“Readers who enjoy wizardry, magic, and competition will relish this book… a worthy addition to a middle grade library.” —School Library Connection

“Lots of campy humor, puns, and wordplay should make this a fun read for the upper elementary set…Purchase where goofy magical fantasy is in high demand.” —School Library Journal

Praise for Pilfer Academy:

Praise for The Only Thing Worse Than Witches:
*”Combines Roald Dahl’s Witches and Louis Sachar’s Wayside School….readers will banish themselves from the ordinary world to finish this book in a flash.”—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“A rollicking tale…first-time novelist Lauren Magaziner fashions a rich and compelling alternative reality.”—The Chicago Tribune

“A fun, frothy story that will, well, charm its readers.”—Publishers Weekly
