4.0 out of 5 stars Mr Majeika Vanishes Review 8 July 2004
My favourite book is Mr Majeika vanishes. My favourite character is Mr Majeika. His book is about a school and Mr Majeika is a schoolteacher.
The first day the teacher said that he had left. Class 3 was very upset and the new teacher called Mrs Bigmore.
It was written by Humphrey Carpenter.I like the story becase it is really exciting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amusing and exciting. 16 Oct 1999
By Laura Harder ( - Published on
This is a very amusing book and very funny. Like the other Mr. Majeika books it is very adventurous. He is a retired wizard although he still does magic and he is now a teacher at St Barty's where his students Joddy, Thomas and Pete help him out of a difficult scrape.
