Book Review: Fridays with the Wizards (MG)



Goodreads Summary:
Celie and her friends and family are back in the Castle, safe and sound. But there's still the problem of Wizard Arkwright. What do you do with an evil wizard? 

Especially when he escapes from his cell, but doesn't leave the Castle!

Now it's up to Celie, with the help of her wizard brother Bran and her griffins, to track down Arkwright and get rid of him for good!

My Review:
This series is just plan fun. A magical castle, flying Griffins, wizards...what's not to enjoy. Like the other books in the series, this book contains a whole new adventure. The evil wizard, Arkwright, who was captured at the end of book 3, has escaped from prison. Celie and her family must find him before he carries out his sinister plans.

I am a sucker for sequels. I just can't resist learning what happens to my beloved characters. This book continues many relationships from the previous books, and I enjoyed seeing them advance. The adventure was fun, and the world building was consistent and enjoyable. Jessica Day George has delivered another delightful book.

Again, my rating is a little low because middle grade books aren't the ideal genre for me. I think younger audiences would love this book. As I've said before, I can't wait to share this series with my son when he's a little older.

My Rating: 3 Stars
