This was a superb blast of fun, even for us grown up kids. Spot on, it made me chuckle, feel happy and the flow was effortless. Two boys get into fun and mischief, one is a wizard, the other human. May not be for every adult (the genre being Juvenile fantasy), but it was light and refreshing. Good to be reminded of the fun you wanted to have as a kid. It made me happy.
Thus begins My Wizard Buddy by the writing team of Brian Wu and Scott Spotson. The 123-page fantasy novel is a perfect match for pre-teen boys looking for a thrill ride as Tyler soon discovers Dirk is a wizard from a distant star offering Tyler an adventure he’ll never forget.
Since Tyler is shy and doesn’t have many friends, Dirk, under the cloak of invisibility, gets Ryan, the most popular boy in sixth grade, to actually visit Tyler’s home. Other adventures include threatening crocodile men, a paintball war, and an actual real life adventure with the amazing Spider-man.
Warning: Just keep a watch on your kid while he’s reading this book so he comes up for air. He won’t be able to put this book down.
Michael Thal is the author of the Koolura series.
The narrative is fast paced: Tyler and his wizard buddy are busy almost all through the book and the adventures come thick and fast. For kids who are used to the rapid-fire pace of television and Internet broadcasts, this high-speed adventure novel should hold their attention long enough for them to make it through to the end. It has, after all, pretty much everything from magic to villains that are truly villainous (including a giant flying octopus and some weird aliens that look like a cross between alligators and gangsters in long trench coats.) It even has a bit of a love story - not the mushy kind - and even a touch of pathos when we learn that one of Tyler's friends would dearly like to talk to his dead father.
The dialogue between Tyler and his wizard buddy sometimes, however, seems a little forced. I'm a grandfather and the kids I know don't talk in the same way as Tyler and his friends do. I was also bothered by the fact that the alien wizard appears so human-like that he's able to easily pass as an 11-year-old boy. So easily, in fact, that he fools experienced parents who do not give his appearance a second glance. I would have liked him to appear, at least initially, a little more alien and then use his magic to conform to human form. He comes, after all, from a planet that is also inhabited by alligator men so it's kind of unlikely that humans would develop in exactly the same way there as they did on earth.
Those criticisms shouldn't, I hope, detract from the fact that I think this is a book that a lot of kids would enjoy.
