Publisher's Summary

A long time ago Magic faded away, leaving behind only yo-yos, the extremely useful compass-pointing-to-North enchantment and the spell that keeps bicycles from falling over. Things are about to change. Magical power is on the rise and King Snodd IV of Hereford has realised that he who controls Magic controls almost anything. Only one person stands between Snodd and his plans for unimaginable power and riches.
Meet Jennifer Strange, 16-year-old acting manager of Kazam, the employment agency for sorcerers and soothsayers. She may only have one functioning Wizard and her faithful assistant 'Tiger' Prawns to help her. But one thing is certain: she will not relinquish the noble powers of Magic to big business and commerce without a fight.

A brilliantly imaginative book which is a fantastic sequel to the last dragon slayer. It developers the story of Jennifer strange and increases your understanding of the world in which she lives. Jane Collingwood is a brilliant narrator and brings the story to life for the reader. Overall an amazing book and I can't wait for the final chapter in the trilology.

What does Jane Collingwood bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Her voice is perfect for Jennifer; absolutely perfect, and her reading makes this book a joy to listen to.
