      If Harry Potter's world is a Wizarding world, well there's also a world for sorcery.

            This book was amazing. I read it quite a long time ago so I don't exactly remember the story but I do know it was really good and every body should read it.

              Magikal and darke, this book really pulls readers into the book itself! Actually, if Septimus was real, I might have had a small crush on him. Well, just kidding! :) I prefer Spit Fyre better.

                I could not take my eyes off this book when I was in 4th grade.... I would recommend this book series to anyone, but make sure you start with book one "Magyc"
