Gr. 5--8. "A WARNING: Wizardology is not a subject to be pottered with. Heed the example of Dr. Faustus . . ." So opens this timely, elaborately packaged companion to Dragonology (2003). Students of the magical arts courageous enough to read on will find eye-opening disquisitions on wizardly garb and wands, types of spells, the care and feeding of familiars, uses for gryphon earwax and other substances, plus picture galleries of magical beasts and renowned wizards. In addition, there are pull tabs with "magical" effects, attached booklets, a phoenix's feather, a scrap of Fairy Flag, and more--all sandwiched between "crystal" gems embedded in the front and rear covers. Four illustrators contribute elaborately detailed creatures, symbols, and views of a wizard's workshop to this surprisingly sturdy production. Be bold. John Peters

WIZARDOLOGY, A Book of the Secrets of Merlin, is a remarkable new find for devotees of the bestselling DRAGONOLOGY and EGYPTOLOGY and Apprentices seeking the Power of Wizards for Good Purpose. WIZARDOLOGY offers valuable spells, charms, recipes, arcane wisdom, and even helpful tips: "For the chasing away of boils, buboes, pustules and unsightly lumps.." But, Apprentices, beware and take heed: "Wizardology is not a subject to be pottered with. Heed the example of Dr. Faustus, who made an ill-advised pact with a rather nasty spirit. He got everything he wanted but had to pay with his soul."See all Editorial Reviews
