THE WIZARD THAT WAS by Richard Hills


Coming home from school, Penny and Tuppence come across a wood and decide to explore. It turns out to be a magic wood. They meet Alice and the White Rabbit who take them to a village in the wood where they meet the Dame from Mother Goose, Idle Jack, Cinderella, Baroness Stony Broke, Baron Stony Broke, and the Robbers from Babes in the Wood.

King Leopold has asked Wizard Wisbang to get a Prince for his daughter’s eighteenth birthday. Instead, all Wizbang’s spells go wrong and he can’t put them right without his wand which someone has stolen.

How are the Pantomime characters going to get back to their right Pantomimes in time for Christmas, and how are Penny and Tuppence going to get home. Also will the King’s daughter get her Prince? Will the “Wizard that was” get back to being “The Wizard that is”?
