I think children 8-12 should read Wizard at Work because it is really exciting! I could hardly put the book down! This book is by Vivian Vande Velde. There is this wizard, and he wants a friend. He keeps getting called for emergencies,and, they aren't emergencies! At the end, he finally gets a friend. I HIGHLY recommend this book for children 8-12 years old.

I really enjoyed the stories, but I don't think I would have spent that much money on this book if I'd known how short it was. Not a great value for the money. That being said, I would probably check out this author's other books from the library, but I would not purchase them for myself even though I think I would enjoy them.Was this review helpful?

I bought this book just yesterday and I'm done with it. It may not be long, but it is very funny and just what people need after a long day of dealing with reality. It is about a wizard who just wants to take a break but is not able to because all these people call upon his aid. Some are royal, some are snobby, and some are the locals, and some are just well... you'll see!! The ending is satisfying, and I like it very much! On the back, the age range is 9-12, but anybody who wants to take a break from books where evil occur unstoppably will enjoy this.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
