Description
(A New York Times Book Review's Notable Children's Book of 2012) In the good old days, magic was indispensable; it could both save a kingdom and clear a clogged drain. But in this hilarious satire for young adults, from the creator of the Thursday Next series, magic is fading—drain cleaner is cheaper than a spell, and magic carpets are used for pizza delivery. On the proverbial shoestring, 15-year-old foundling Jennifer Strange runs Kazam, an employment agency for underemployed magicians. Life and business seem to be headed nowhere for her until the visions start, predicting the death of the world's last dragon at the hands of an unnamed Dragonslayer. If the visions are true, everything will change for Kazam, and for Jennifer, because something is coming—something known as Big Magic.

"Fantasy readers with a taste for the silly should appreciate the subverted tropes."—Kirkus Reviews
