The Book of Wizards combines the works of contemporary authors such as Jane Yolen, Philip Pullman, Diane Duane, Garth Nix, William Nicholson, and Aoin Colfer with classic stories from writers such as E. Nesbit, George Macdonald, Frank L. Baum, and Edward Eager. The result is another magical collection of stories that capture the imagination and mesmerize the reader—a surefire bet for Harry Potter fans, both young and old. Young children and teenagers who pine for the next Potter book will be thrilled to discover that the world of wonderful magic stories extends well beyond today's most familiar authors. Moreover, parents will enjoy sharing these stories of imagination and enchantment with their younger children—and will want to sneak the stories back into their own beds for further reading after the kids are asleep.
