Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Something stopped Nita's hand as it ran along the bookshelf. She looked and found that one of the books had a loose thread at the top of its spine. It was one of those So You Want to Be a . . . books, a series on careers. So You Want to Be a Pilot, and a Scientist . . . a Writer. But his one said, So You Want to Be a Wizard.

I don't belive this, Nina thought. She shut the book and stood there holding it in her hand, confused, amazed, suspicious--and delighted. If it was a joke, it was a great one. If it wasn't . . . ?

Review:

"[This book] stands between the works of Diana Wynne Jones [and] Madeleine L'Engle....An outstanding original work." Horn Book

Review:

"[W]ell-structured and believable...this fantasy should have wide appeal." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

Thirteen-year-old Nita, tormented by a gang of bullies because she won't fight back, finds the help she needs in a library book on wizardry which guides her into another dimension.

Synopsis:

Synopsis:

The book that started it all turns twenty!

Synopsis:

Long before wizards were a fixture on the bestseller lists, Kit and Nita were working magic with readers of all ages. So You Want to Be a Wizard is now available in a deluxe hardcover edition, featuring a new afterword from Diane Duane as well as the hard-to-find Kit and Nita short story "Uptown Local."

Synopsis:

Young wizards Kit and Nita are faced with strange events when a life form from another era emerges on Mars. Though the Martians seem friendly, they have a plan that could change the shape of more than one world. As the shadow of interplanetary war stretches over both worlds, Kit and Nita must fight to master the strange and ancient synergy binding them to Mars and its last inhabitants. If they dont succeed, the history that left Mars lifeless will repeat itself on Earth.
