"A gay and bewitching story about the Forest of Boland and the creatures who live there - scheming gnomes, black cats, dragons, cowzies, and, most exciting of all, the Wizard. In the valley nearby lives a little goosegirl called Helda; Helda upsets the Wizard and he, irritated, decides to cast a spell on her. Alas! all the workable spells require dragon's blood, which is not so easy to come by. But, eventually, in perusing a musty old tome entitled Wizard Wizardry, he is delighted to discover the very thing. ...Here an amazing adventure begins". One of BB's delightful children's novels. Chapters include:- The wizard in his cave; A surprise for the gnomes; Wizard wizardry; A nasty situation; Dragon's blood; New friends and an old enemy; The book of spells; A chance of escape; The spell works; A prisoner again; Dragons don't forget; Conclusion.
