Mairelon the Magician: Reviewed

Author:Patricia C. Wrede
Reading Level (Conceptual):Children 8 and up
Reading Level (Vocabulary):Children 8 and up
Genre:fiction, magic
Year of publication:1991

My daughter says, "I really, really like the way the characters use magic in the world the author has built."

"Not as good as the Dealing With Dragons books," says my 9-year old. "But I love all the long words the author uses." (We read the first few chapters with the Oxford English Dictionary open on our laps, magnifying glass poised in our hands.) The plot in this one is just a little too complicated for anyone to follow. But we are already searching for a copy of the sequel. In fact, dd is determined to work her way through every book Wrede has ever written
