Staff Reviews

The Young Wizards series is the true heir to A Wrinkle In Time: the science is substantive, the magic zips and fizzes, and compassion is the heart of heroism. Children's fiction has a mandate to tell the stories of how we learn how to be people, and then, how we learn to be good people. This is the rare series that fulfills that mandate and then some. I reread it every year or two, partially for the adventures, partially for its incredible heart.

— From Lauren


Something stopped Nita's hand as it ran along the bookshelf. She looked and
found that one of the books had a loose thread at the top of its spine. It was one of those So You Want to Be a . . . books, a series on careers. So You Want to Be a Pilot, and a Scientist . . . a Writer. But his one said, So You Want to Be a Wizard.
I don't belive this, Nina thought. She shut the book and stood there holding it in
her hand, confused, amazed, suspicious--and delighted. If it was a joke, it was a great one. If it wasn't . . . ?
