When Jack is rushed to hospital with appendicitis he has no idea that his stay on the children’s ward will be so eventful. When Ms Wiz turns up masquerading as Dr Wisdom, all havoc breaks loose – and Jack’s class teacher gets more than he bargained for when he tries a mouthful of hospital food! In the next story Ms Wiz mysteriously appears in Jack’s local library and saves it from closure with a few sprinkles of Fish Powder and a large dose of magic. But can Ms Wiz get everything back in control?
These short, fast-paced stories are buzzing with hilarious antics from the larger than life Ms Wiz. The eye-catching cover design and amusing black and white sketches by Tony Ross complement the book’s humorous narrative, and will help to fuel the imagination of even the most reluctant readers.
