The Lovereading4Kids comment

October 2014 Debut of the Month A simple and witty rhyming text tells how Woozy the Wizard sets about trying to make the villagers of Snottington Sneeze better after they have all gone down with a very severe kind of sneezing sickness! There are lots of jokes which are easily spotted in the illustrations too!

Synopsis

Woozy the Wizard A Spell to Get Well by Elli Woollard

In the faraway village of Snottington Sneeze

Lived a wizened old wizard with knocketty knees.

Woozy the Wizard is a well-meaning wizard who just wants to help his friends. But sometimes his spells (and he) get all mixed up! So then he has to get back on his broom with his pet pig and zoom around the village trying to put things right...

Your spells sometimes flop but you see, we don't mind;

We love you, dear wizard, because you are kind.

With hilarious rhyming verse coupled with full colour illustrations throughout, Woozy the Wizard: A Spell to Get Well is great fun to read together and wonderful for taking a gentle step towards reading alone too.
