Publisher's Summary

They say that a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, but it is not one half so bad as a lot of ignorance. There are some situations where the correct response is to display the sort of ignorance that happily and wilfully flies in the face of the facts. In this case, the birth of a baby girl, born a wizard, by mistake. Everybody knows that there's no such thing as a female wizard. But now it's gone and happened, there's nothing much anyone can do about it. Let the battle of the sexes begin.

Shame there was no Nigel Planer Unabridged version

Tony Robinson does bring this alive, but it's a Shame I couldn't get the Unabridged read by Nigel Planer. He does the sarcasm very well. As does Tony Robinson in this one. Unabridged was voiced by someone I've not heard of, who didn't seem to carry off the dry wit of the book in the same way.

Great book

I loved, the narrator gives the story character. Would only say that sometimes it is quite hard to listen on the go, since the narrator lower his voice, so if you are out and about, with the noise on the streets, you might struggle a bit.
