  1. A powerless wizard? That sounds like it could be interesting. Thanks for the recommendation. I like to give books for Christmas and I'm getting some good ideas.

  2. Hi Helen,
    I'm getting great ideas, too. I started reading The Guernsy Literary and Potato Peel Society this morning and LOVE IT.

    I read Hamilton Swoop to make sure it would be okay for my nephew and enjoyed it myself. Nephew will receive a copy, but perhaps not mine:-).


  3. Charlotte, you have to be careful about reading a book that you intend to give as a gift. :-)

    This sounds like a fun story. I may check it out for my granddaughter.

  4. Looks like a very original book written by someone with a great imagination.
