I just love this series. Wizardology makes a beautiful addition to my library, sitting next to the Dragonology books. There is much fun between the pages with pictures and text and games: Did you know Merlin is also known by the name Taliesin? This is a must have for any student of wizardry.

Publisher Comments:

Aspiring wizards can tune in to the age-old wisdom of Merlin with this dazzling compendium of all things magical — unveiling novelty elements throughout.

For any apprentice determined to learn the arcane arts of wizardry, could there be a better teacher than . . . Merlin himself? Originally discovered in 1588, this remarkable text by history's most respected wizard is revealed to the world for the very first time. Lavishly illustrated by four delicate artists, WIZARDOLOGY's intricate design even conceals a series of hidden symbols that spell out a secret message when their code is deciphered — if the reader is clever enough to find them.

Among WIZARDOLOGY's special features are:

-a glittering crystal ball-like jewel on the front cover

- a world map showing locations of wizards around the globe

- tactile samples of a "fairy flag" with one wish remaining and a phoenix feather to aid in flying charms

- booklets explaining the proper use of spells, familiars, and potions

- a removable dragon pendant allowing the user to dowse for mythical beasts

- a pack of eight removable fortune-tellling cards

- a 48-page mini book of divination on the final spread

This book is beautiful, but i would be cautious, this book may be a fantasy, but the Circle at the very beginning of the book can be used as a wiji board, i know from experiancing it today, i would not use it unless you know how.

I am just amazed by this book and I'm very happy to own it. It's as if the moment I open the book, I enter a world of magic, I feel the magic pouring out of the colorful pages, and it's just so wonderful.
My only question is this: Was there anything in that thing in the back of the book that you can open? When I opened that thing it didn't have anything in it so please let me know if there was supposed to be anything in it. My email address is tdp_superstar96@yahoo.com and it's important to me that you give me an answer. Thank you very much, and goodbye.
