Product description

Fred may look ordinary, but sometimes people who look ordinary turn out to be the exact opposite. And in Fred’s case, it just so happens that he 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, things aren’t a whole lot better. All Fred wants is to become a better wizard. But how can he do that? So when he hears about a competition to meet Merlin – yes, THE Merlin! – Fred knows it’s his one chance to prove he’s not the worst wizard in town. The catch? To win the prize, he has to capture the tail of a terrifying, fire-breathing lizard…

  • A witty story of magic, family, friendship and fun
  • By the acclaimed author of You Must Bring a Hat
  • Hilarious, heartwarming fiction full of child-appeal
  • Imagine The Worst Witch with a cheeky modern wizard
  • The perfect story to keep children interested in books
