The Lovereading4Kids comment

Told in fun, jaunty rhyme and accompanied by bright and cheerful illustrations reminiscent of Meg and Mog, children will fall in love with the accident prone wizard and his stoic pink sidekick. Perfect for emerging readers starting to read for themselves, or lovely to read aloud, this series is a must-have addition to every family’s bookshelf.

Woozy the Wizard: A Broom to Go Zoom by Elli Woollard

In the faraway village of Snottington Sneeze Lived a wizened old wizard with knocketty knees. Woozy the Wizard loves his old broom - not too small, not too big - but it is a little rusty. So when he spies a Shiny New Shop with Hoovers he can't believe his luck! If only he could make his new hoover go zoom...


Praise for A Spell to Get Well:

‘Lots of humour, great rhythm and rhyme…and clear, bright and colourful illustrations all add up to a lovely book perfect to give to your emerging reader.’ Playing by the Book

‘Elli’s new series of rhyming stories for Faber and Faber are a delight.’ Read it Daddy!
