Oliver Moon and the Potion Commotion

Publisher: Usborne

Schools and magic are a winning combination, and Oliver Moon's adventures bring the genre to a younger readership via a tiny chapter-book.

Oliver is desperate to win a wizarding award, but the judging includes a visit to his home. Unfortunately his parents are awful at being magical, and he fears he will fail.

But the family rallies round, and Oliver ends up with an award, and parents reconverted to wizardry.

Young readers will revel in the descriptions of the disgusting living conditions and diet required of all the best wizards, and in the distinctive illustrations!

The book's underlying message, however, is a valuable one – that we need to work together to achieve, and when we do, it brings satisfaction for all.
