“A charming twist on the usual fantasy protagonist – Wednesday Weeks would rather be a scientist than a magician! She will need all her budding scientific knowledge, her magical heritage and the help of her best friend to defeat the powerful goblin king that captured her grandfather – a thoroughly enjoyable read.” – Maya (QBD Belconnen)
In a world of magic, can science save the day?
Wednesday Weeks never wanted to be a sorcerer’s apprentice. She’d rather study science than magic. But when her cloak-wearing, staff-wielding grandpa is captured by a power-hungry goblin king, Wednesday must find a way to embrace her magical heritage and rescue him from the dreaded Tower of Shadows.
Luckily, she’s not alone. Her best friend Alfie is a prime-number fan and robotics expert who’s all-in on Wednesday’s epic plan involving parallel universes, swords of power, and a wise-cracking talking skull.
But it’s going to take more than science, magic, and the world’s cutest robot to take down this bad guy. Because the goblin king is playing for the ultimate prize – and Wednesday and Alfie just walked into his trap…
“This novel follows a young magician Wednesday and her best friend and science genius Alfie.
They go on an adventure to rescue Wednesday’s grandfather who is a grandmaster wizard through school and several other strange and weird dimensions. This fun novel is ideal for any young fan of fantasy who wants a rollicking, enjoyable read.” – Joshua (QBD Australia Fair)
