Book Review


There was once a wizard, a fairy, and a magic chicken who could never get along. They are always competing with one another and arguing over who has the most magic. Their quarrel finally lands them in front of three monsters they cannot outrun. Faced with no other option, they decide to work together to beat the monsters. It is difficult to say whether the illustrations or the text is more entertaining in this lively tale, but the clever lesson on teamwork shines throughout.
