The first day at a new school is often tricky, and if the only person who befriends you claims to be a wizard, you simply have to make the best of it! Joe is pretty certain that Billy has, as the teacher says, just got an over-active imagination, but when he witnesses some pretty odd events at playtime, he's not quite so sure...This is a really engaging book for newly confident readers, which perfectly captures the way young children speak and behave, in the classroom, the playground and at home. It's a refreshing new take both on bullying and on magic.

Buy Billy Wizard book by Chris Priestley from Australia's Online Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
