Booklist Review

Gr. 1^-2. In the latest I Can Read Book about Wizard and his dog, Wart, there's no pretense of a plot--trouble is coming and Wizard puts it right each time with a magic spell--but new readers will enjoy the silly slapstick situations and comic watercolor pictures, especially when Wizard sneezes as he's chanting a spell and turns a flooding river into whipped cream. --Hazel Rochman


School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2ÄThere's plenty of trouble and fun in this new book about the pair introduced in Wizard and Wart (1994) and Wizard and Wart at Sea (1995, both HarperCollins). Wizard and his dog, Wart, are justifiably worried when Zounds the vulture announces, "Trouble is coming!" not once but several times. The first announcement brings spark ants armed with matches; the second, a flood; the third, an ice storm; and the last brings a female vulture named Trouble to their door. Wizard casts a spell that ends each crisis with the exception of the arrival of the last "trouble," which Zounds will somehow have to solve for himself. Children will enjoy the humorous exchanges between Wizard and Wart as well as the comical appearances of a nervous rabbit and Wizard's wacky spells. The story is fast paced and even struggling readers will be hooked by the playful text. The lively illustrations reinforce the lighthearted tone and provide some visual clues. As Wizard might say: the third time's a charm.ÄMaura Bresnahan, Topsfield Town Library, MA (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
