I loved this book as soon as I picked it up. The author (Humphrey Carpenter) uses lots of detail and has many inetersting ideas. I think that this book is similar to the Harry Potter books but I liked this one more, it was more interesting and funny.

My 6 year old daughter loves these 'Mr majeika' books, and she really enjoyed this story. So much so, I found her in bed late, with the lamp on, fnishing the last few pages! (Not ideal on a school night!)
