Book Review

Just from the first page I knew that this book was going to be good because of how much action was going on from the start

The reason why I liked this book is because of all the cool magic and spells.There was lots of exciting stuff going on. There were cliffhangers which made me want to keep reading and there were funny parts as well. As I was reading it I realised you don’t need to read the first book (The Wizard in My Shed) All you need to know is who the characters are.

My favourite character is the guinea pig called Bubbles which is also the name of my guinea pig!

I like him because he is very funny and sarcastic and there is bit in a chapter about him which I loved, it was hilarious and made me laugh so much.

Just from the first page I knew that this book was going to be good because of how much action was going on from the start.

Also, a thing I liked about the book was that there were facts in it at the bottom of the page about something that was said in the text.
The illustrations were also very good.

I think they really described the characters personalities and the expressions on the characters faces were really good. It described how they where feeling and what they they were about to do.

So, over all this book is very, very good. I definitely recommend it.
