Rustle up a little magic in digital or ebook form with either of these two packages containing Wizard’s Guide to Wellington on PledgeMe.
Nominated for a 2013 Sir Julius Vogel Award, Wizard’s Guide is an adventure where the only romance is that of Wellington city itself, and the world of magic lying just beneath the surface –
Alec finds a magical book, “The Wizard’s Guide to Wellingtowne,” lying in the corridor of Wellington Airport. But it doesn’t help answer his questions. Where is his father? Where is Perrin, the mysterious English cousin they were supposed to be meeting? And, most importantly, am I going mad, or is someone playing practical joke?
Perrin arrives at “Wellingtowne Airport” only to discover, Ike, her cantankerous wizarding guide had disappeared. She has been warned abut the dangerous city of “Wellingtowne,” but when she sets out to find her missing uncle she has no idea just how dangerous it is going to get.
“Bad men watch you.”
Two cousins from different worlds must rescue Wellington from wizards who wish wake a very dangerous taniwha.
A.J. Ponder is the author of award winning stories published in New Zealand and internationally, and has written plays and stories for School Journals in New Zealand and Australia. Lost in the Museum (YA) contains two companion pieces Lost at Te Papa & Found at Te Papa, about a boy and his family who are dropped through time into Victorian Wellington. She was also instrumental at creating the many links that hold the collection together. She also has a BSc Hons and Dip Teach, but doesn’t tend to mention these qualifications, maintaining reading should be fun first…and fun second. More here.
The Santa’s Little Helpers and Christmas Wizard packages are both available on PledgeMe – and Wizard’s Guide, The Best of Twisty Christmas Tales and Lost in the Museum are all available for order, or pre-order on Amazon.
