The Wizards of Once – giveaway

You all know that we are massive fans of Cressida Cowell in this household.  Even more so since my son got to meet her not so long ago. Earlier this month saw the release of  the paperback version of The Wizards of Once.  The first in a new series of books, featuring the warrior princess Wish and her supposed arch-enemy Xar of the Wizards.

The Wizards of Once

We’ve almost finished reading our hardback copy of The Wizards of Once and both my eight year old son and I can thoroughly recommend it.  If you were fans of the How to Train Your Dragon series, then you will really enjoy this new series too.  We may not see any dragons in this new series, but there are witches and wizards, sprites and snowcats to keep you on your toes.

To celebrate the paperback release of The Wizards of Once Hachette Children’s Group has released a live action short video based on the two main characters from the book who meet in the Wildwood.

But in this film, the action doesn’t take place in the mysterious Wildwood but somewhere closer to home.  But magic still features heavily.

The book itself has already won the 2018 Blue Peter Award for Best Story and DreamWorks will be turning the story into an animated film.  We are eagerly awaiting the publication of The Wizards of Once: Twice Magic in September this year as the first adventure has really caught my son’s imagination again.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum with an 8 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing days out, toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.

  1. My name would be Snowdrop because like the flower I would be an unassuming but well-loved little sprite.

  2. My name would be Twinkle because I love all of the glittery and holographic make up, and I twinkle every day!

  3. My name would be Bijou – Jewel in French because I think it is pretty and I would want to be a gem to everyone 🙂
