Overview

"Just a few miles from a normal neighborhood, there lies a place that you can only imagine in your most magical dreams..."

When Charlie Goodfellow's family moves to a new neighborhood, the last thing the eleven year old is looking for is adventure. But one day when he is exploring a secluded, hilltop community called Wizard Heights, he finds it.

Up there, a secret society of magician’s sip tea to the dulcet tones of string quartets on moonlit nights, and there are more sinister forces at work, too.

A strange, pale boy named Whitstable befriends Charlie and tells him about a sinister plot involving his cryogenically frozen magician grandfather and a mysterious Egyptian Idol of Thebes. Blackmailed into complicity, Charlie is plunged headlong into an adventure that will take him deep beneath the cobwebby catacombs of the community, and into a palace of one of the most esteemed luminaries of Wizard Heights.

The story gallops along at an unstoppable pace, taking many fascinating twists and turns along the way. Wonderful characters are to be found here—action, adventure, magic, and mystery too.

Wizard Heights is about a kid name Charlie who has recently moved to an new neighborhood that is near a retirement home called Wizard Heights. A retirement home for wizards. Charlie is introduced into the fun world of mystic arts by another kid named Whitstable. Whitstable is a strange one, but he seems to want to share the secrets of Wizard Heights with Charlie. This is a funny story that is very light hearted and enjoyable to read.

This book took off right from the start and I really liked it. It was quite a magical adventure for the boy in this story. It had lots of interesting characters.

The characters and plot need much more development and background to draw the readers interest.

I am an adult who loves to read kids books. Always looking for something new and this book is just that. I am a fan of Harry Potter, therefore I look for books along the same lines. Charlie is a boy who moves into a new neighborhood an soon discovers a wizard retirement area near his home, complete with a strange boy and a very dark secret. The story is fast moving and fun, and keeps you guessing.
