I love all the magical creatures, especially the really evil ones, who are very cool! This is the first book in the trilogy and once I had read it, I couldn't wait to read the other ones. The wizards' kingdom has been taken over by an evil wizard, and it is up to the other wizards to defeat him and his army of evil dominions in over to prevent him from destroying them and their kingdom completely. This quest leads them to sorcerers' point and to a surprising discovery about a horse! This magical story takes you into a wonderful fantasy realm, with beautiful landscapes and amazing creatures. Each chapter is full of action and makes you want to read the next. If you like fantasy, this book is for you! (Reviewer aged 9) This is a review from a reader called 'Fantasy Fan.' 'The first edition of Colin R Parson's `Curious World' series is one of the best fantasy books I've read in a long while. It has all of the breathtaking suspense of The Lord of the Rings trilogy but mixes in the page-turning fun of newer novels like the Power of Five series by Anthony Horowitz. Believe me, if you like Harry Potter or The Spiderwick Chronicles the then this is definitely the adventure for you. It's fast, funny and leaves you wanting more. You will not be disappointed, whatever age you are.'
