Fred: Wizard in Training

by Simon Philip, illustrated by Sheena Dempsey - £6.99  Simon & Schuster Children's (2019)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781471190957 | ISBN 10: 1471190951

Fred may look ordinary, but sometimes people who look ordinary turn out to be not very ordinary at all ... because it just so happens that Fred is a Wizard!
 
Sounds pretty great, right? Except that Fred is absolutely, completely, mind-boggingly TERRIBLE at magic. At school, he’s stuck in a class of wizards half his age, feeling like a twit among tots. At home, he’s endlessly teased by his siblings and always a disappointment to his parents. All Fred wants is to become a better wizard....
 
So when he hears about a competition to meet Merlin(yes, THE Merlin!) Fred knows it's his one chance to prove to his family that he's not the worst wizard in town. The catch? To win the competition he has to capture the tail of a terrifying, fire-breathing lizard...
 
Recommended for readers aged 7+
