“A magical story full of humor and heart.” —Katherine Applegate, Newbery-winning author of The One and Only Ivan
For fans of The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom comes an offbeat, comedic spin on the Excalibur legend told from the point of view of a talking dog who wants to be a magician!
Meet Nosewise. He’s spunky. He’s curious. And he’s a dog who can’t understand why his pack mates Merlin and Morgana spend all day practicing magic tricks. If it’s a trick they want, he’s the dog to ask! He can already Sit!, Stay!, and Roll Over!
But there’s no way Nosewise is Stay!ing when his master and best friend, Merlin, is kidnapped. There’s nothing Nosewise won’t do to get Merlin back, even if it means facing the strange Fae people and their magic-eating worms, or tangling with the mysterious Sword in the Stone. But it may take more than sniffing out a spell to do it!
Nosewise’s hilarious escapades and steadfast loyalty get him and his companions through King Arthur’s Dark Ages.
"An entertaining adventure full of humor and magic" –Booklist
"A delightful magical fantasy, perfect for fans of fairy tales, legends, and dogs.” –School Library Journal
"An ingenious and entirely credible (at least dog lovers will agree with this) twist on the familiar tale.” –Kirkus Reviews
"Nosewise is one of the silliest narrators around." —The Bulletin
The Wizard's Dog
This is a book for Young Readers. Eric is another new author so I wasn't sure how this would read. I was amazed at the story line. I would recommend this to everyone who likes Wizards, teens, and dogs. Merlin saved his dog, Nosewise. He also took in Morgana and makes her his assistant. The work with magic makes Nosewise mad because they won't let him help. There will be some fighting. Nosewise sees soldiers take Merlin and Morgana. Then he finds Arthur who cleans all the toilets. Nosewise grabs an Asteria, spoiler of a magic necklace. They run after the soldiers to save them. There is a lot of action. They ran into all kinds of trouble. I really like that this story has pictures in it. It is also read Nosewise. They also ran into Nivian otherwise known as the lady in the Lake. I never would have imagined this story line. I hope you check out this book. It really pulls you into it. Don't let this get away! I volunteered to read and review this book.
