Take a look inside The Wizard in the Wood

Next month we’re thrilled to be publishing The Wizard in the Wood – the funny, magical and action-packed third adventure in The Dragon in the Library series, by Louie Stowell. And today we’re sharing an early preview – you can read the first few chapters below!

Kit, Josh and Alita are heading back to school – and they’re excited to discover that they’re getting a brand new library, which also means getting their own wizard librarian… and a dragon! But when something VERY BAD happens at the new library, it’s up to Kit and her friends to save the world one more time.

Take a look inside the book:

The Wizard in the Wood will be published on January 14th – you can pre-order a copy of the book from Waterstones here, Amazon here, and Hive here.
