Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heather Christensen
Following the success of his books Dragonology and Wizardology, editor Dugald Steer has produced another faux nonfiction title which purports to be "a True Account of Wizards, Their Ways, and Many Wonderful Powers as told by Master Merlin." The pages of the spiral-bound book appear to be aged parchment and abound with pen-and-ink drawings, notes, and ancient spells for the apprentice wizard. The tongue-in-cheek instruction includes frequent cautions against using magic for evil, and even suggests that the world may be in greater need of scientists than wizards. Indeed, some of the wizard assignments involve scientific methods of observation, such as creating a weather record, learning to identify plants and trees, and making a compass. The lessons are divided into four units, each associated with a season and a regional type of wizard: Western Wizards, Sages of Arabia, Eastern Masters, and Shamans. Each unit also refers to folklore and legends associated with these regions. The book includes a small removable map of the known wizards, a well-organized table of contents, a glossary of magical terms, a section for writing one's own spells, and several pages of colorful stickers which can be used to decorate a wizard's room, books, and clothing. The book is sure to be loads of fun for young wizard and magic enthusiasts.
