Description

In the good old days, magic was indispensable. But now magic is fading: Drain cleaner is cheaper than a spell, and magic carpets are used for pizza delivery. Fifteen-year-old Jennifer Strange runs Kazam, an employment agency for magicians--but it's hard to stay in business when magic is drying up. And then the visions start, predicting the death of the world's last dragon at the hands of an unnamed Dragonslayer. If the visions are true, everything will change for Kazam--and for Jennifer.

Reviews

"Fforde's forady into children's books will delight readers who like their fantasy with a dash of silliness."--Publishers Weekly, starred review "Fantasy readers with a taste for the silly should appreciate the subverted tropes."--Kirkus "Thoroughly entertaining . . . readers will easily sit back and enjoy the fun."--Booklist

"Fforde's fantasy is smart, funny, and abundantly imaginative in its critique of commercial culture."--Horn Book
