Simply told and illustrated, this is a touching story about a poor little wizard who can’t learn to fly. Alone in the forest practicing his flying, the little wizard meets a dragon who promises to teach him how to do it. They practice together but still the little wizard can’t get his broomstick off the ground. The dragon explains that you need a reason to be able to fly but the little wizard just can’t think of one. But the dragon proves to be right and, when a reason does arise, the little wizard is up and away – and saves the dragon’s skin by doing so.


Little Wizard by Kazuno Kohara

Poor Little Wizard. He's the only one who can't fly, and none of the other wizards will be his friend. But after he meets a dragon in the woods he discovers that friendship can be found in the most surprising of places, and that anything is possible if you believe in yourself. A touching story about the power of friendship and self-belief from the CILIP Kate Greenaway - nominated creator of The Haunted House and Jack Frost.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

Tracey Chorley

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
