Apprentice Academy: Sorcerers
The Unofficial Guide to the Magical Arts
Author: Hal Johnson; illustrated by Cathrin Peterslund
For readers who have always wanted to enroll in a school for magic--be it Hogwarts with Harry Potter or Camp Halfblood with Percy Jackson! Wizard lovers will delight in pretending they’re learning magic from a cheat-sheet handbook from an elite school for sorcery.
Welcome to the Apprentice Academy. Congratulations on your acceptance to one of the world’s finest institutions for sorcery. Your course of study here will be long and perilous, but this book of sorcery skills and fascinating tales from the world of magic will help you along the way—ideally with all your limbs and wits intact.
Learn how to:
· Read minds!
· Perform a love spell!
· Choose an animal familiar!
· Turn anything into gold!
· Summon demons!
· Find a lair!
· And more!
But most of all learn to cheat, or, rather, to weasel through without actually cheating.
Please follow all instructions carefully, as one wrong move can transform your hands into forks or serpents, and then you will have a hard time turning the page.
Inspired by folklore and mythology around the world, Apprentice Academy: Sorcerers is a rich, multicultural exploration and celebration of magic from not just Europe, but also from Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and the Americas.
Narrated by a witty and weaseling character who supplies cheat sheets to students, Apprentice Academy opens the door on an exciting new world of magic and myth, chivalry and royalty, with the second book in the series–Knights–scheduled for Spring 2024.
