FIVE STARRED REVIEWS!    "Adorable."—Shelf Awareness, starred review "Readers will fall in love with [Gumluck]."—School Library Journal, starred review  "Silly and heartfelt."—Publishers Weekly, starred review "[A] spellbinding read."—Booklist, starred review "Here's a tale to treasure."—Kirkus Reviews, starred reviewMeet Gumluck the Wizard, the star of a new chapter book series by the inimitable Adam Rex!This is a story about magic, if you like that kind of thing. It is also a story about a ghost with amnesia, an unpopular fairy, an ungrateful little town, and an extremely wise and helpful raven (who happens to be a pretty talented storyteller). But mostly, it is about a friendly little wizard who lives inside a big hill and really, really, really wants to be a hero. His name is Gumluck, and he is a bumbling noodlehead. In this tall tale about a short wizard, celebrated author Adam Rex proves once and for all that the biggest heroes often come in the smallest nightgowns.Perfect for: Fans of Adam Rex Parents and grandparents seeking funny children's book series Teachers and librarians looking for engaging children's fantasy and magic books Anyone looking for fantasy chapter books Readers who enjoy Chris Colfer's A Tale of Magic, the Unicorn Academy series, and Magic Tree House books
