 A raucously funny middle grade adventure for fans ofTerry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman...Twig is the last surviving apprentice of thegreat wizard Ripplemintz, which, as a job, is justas terrifying as it sounds. Oh Ripplemintz alwaysmeans well, but for a wizard of such high regardhe really does make an awful lot of mistakes.And who's always left to clear them up? That's right - Twig.So when Ripplemitz's most powerful spell is letloose on the world, off Twig goes to catch it.And catch it he does, except... not quite in theway that he intended. Because, instead of catching it in an enchantedjar, Twig sort of... well... catches it in... HIMSELF.Brilliantly funny, with bags and bags of heart, TheAccidental Wizard is destined to leave youcompletely spellbound.
