Wizard’s Hall

by Jane Yolen


Wizard’s Hall

With a degree of whimsy worthy of Peter Beagle, this young-adult tale of an ordinary boy named Henry who travels to Wizard’s Hall to learn how to be a magician is one if a number of stories that predate the Harry Potter series. The way magic works and how Henry finds a way to defeat the villainous Nettle and his Quilting Beast is quite fun.

Rating: ★★★½☆
