This is the sixteenth title in a series about a remarkable teacher with paranormal powers. Ms Wiz has attitude and has, in previous tales, turned teachers into farmyard animals, fallen in love with Dracula, become the Prime Minister and visited the underworld. Unlike the other stories, The Secret Life of Ms Wiz is written in the first person, as Ms Wiz reveals the secrets of her extraordinary life beyond St Barnabas School. She travels with Jack, Podge and Caroline, three children from her class, millions of miles outside the known universe to the Kingdom of Paranormal Magic and Utter Eternal Mystery. Her ageing father is the ruler of this kingdom but he wants to retire and thinks Ms Wiz should succeed him. Ms Wiz has many other sisters but none of them wants to be queen.
This delightfully dotty tale sees Ms Wiz in a dilemma; remain at St Barnabas or fulfil her paranormal royal obligations and become Queen. The hilarious tale rattles on at a pace, and with a smattering of Tony Ross sketches, each of the eight brisk chapters is over before you know it.
