Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Eileen Hanning
Join Perrywinkle and his friend Andromeda as they practice their new magic skills. Nevermore, the Raven, tries to warn them about the dangers of competition, but Perrywinkle and Andromeda try to out do each other anyway. When their rivalry gets the better of them, and their magical creations aren't what they expected, they must learn to work together. This beginning chapter book - part of the "Dial easy-to-read" series - has colorful watercolor, acrylic, and colored pencil illustrations and a good, albeit predictable, lesson about teamwork and competition.
School Library Journal
Gr 2--In this four-chapter beginning reader, what begins as a simple plan to make a pet for a wizard becomes a war over which type of magic is more powerful--girl magic or boy magic. As the competition escalates into creating dragons, strange creatures, and walking trees, Perrywinkle and Andromeda become more adamant that their own magic is better. In their classroom, the students' hair grows until it fills the room and Perrywinkle grows a tail before the two friends can finally settle their differences. Zimmer's droll cartoons greatly enhance this funny story of two children learning the value of working together.--Jan Shepherd Ross, Dixie Elementary Magnet School, Lexington, KY
