For some reason I’m always drawn to books telling stories with Monkey’s as the main characters. I can’t imagine why? The Rise and Fall of Oscar the Magician is a hardback book written by Matthew Porter and is part of the A Monkey World Adventure series.
This was the perfect book for us to read lately as Monkey’s school topic last term was Magic. We follow Oscar as he competes to win the title of Magician of the Year. Unfortunately Milton the Magnificent wants to make sure that only he can win the coveted title, so he goes out of his way to scupper Oscars performances.
Poor Oscar should be in all sorts of trouble as Milton sabotages his tricks, but somehow he always comes out of things really well and his popularity is ever-growing. Milton decides that drastic measures are called for – he needs to ruin Oscar’s reputation to ensure he can’t win the trophy.
Without ruining the story, there is a magic, a monocle, a blue diamond and a dastardly trick involved. But good always wins the day doesn’t it.
The Rise and Fall of Oscar the Magician is priced at £12.99 and published through GMC Distribution. I’ve included my Amazon affiliate link below for your reference.
