Wizard v Lizard

Wizard v Lizard

For Ages: 6 - 99
This is Wilf. He looks rather ordinary, doesn’t he?

But the thing is, sometimes even ordinary-looking boys can turn out to be not very ordinary at all. Once you know a bit more about them, that is. Wilf is one of these boys. And the reason why he’s not very ordinary is because … Wilf is a wizard.

Well, sort of.

You see, Wilf is absolutely, completely, embarrassingly 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 Wilf wants is to become a better wizard, but can’t think how.  Until one day, he spots a competition to win a prize to meet Merlin and learn the world's most Important and Impressive Spell. The catch: the successful wizard needs to capture the tail of the evil, terrifying, fire-breathing lizard...

From the author of the prize-winning You Must Bring a Hat and I Don't Know What to Call My Cat comes a tale full of magic and fun.

About the Author

Simon Philip

Simon was born in Chichester in 1988 and has lived there ever since, although he occasionally leaves to buy milk. After gaining a 1st class degree in History at Exeter University, he immediately put his skills to good use working as a barman at a local pub. He soon grew tired of the owner calling him Andy, and so, naturally, decided to become a primary school teacher. Teaching rekindled his love of children's literature, particularly picture books, so much so that he had a go at writing his own. Deciding he was better at writing stories for children than he would ever be at teaching them, he made a swift exit from education to live the cliché of the writer who works in a bar. He hopes that one day he'll be able to give up writing stories and become a barman full-time.
