Meet Merdyn the Wild (the world's most badly-behaved wizard), Rose (the world's most ordinary girl) and Bubbles (the world's best guinea pig) on a hilarious adventure that might just end in an epic wizard battle in the garden - if you're lucky.

This book was really good. At first I was unsure whether to carry on or not but I did in the end and it turned out to be a funny and great book

I would recommend this to anyone who likes wizards and action packed books.

I loved this book so much it was really good and interesting and pretty funny because Merdyn came from the dark ages and now he was in the twentieth century so he uses random words and other old words like 'thou'. I totally recommend this book!

This story made me laugh a lot and I loved how the writing was in the book because it looked good. The pictures made me laugh too. I can't remember too much about this book but I know I laughed a lot. I would like to read it again though.

This was a good book with a sad ending.

It's really funny. I think all my friends would like it. I like Rose best, she is really good. And her guinea pig.

It was very funny

Captain Heroica Heronimus 31.08.2021


It is a good book. Some of the 'old dark ages' language was difficult to understand; you had to read more than once and look at the notes at the bottom of the page to fully understand it. I liked Bubbles the guinea pig the most, he would come out with hilarious phrases at random times and he didn't always do as expected. I also liked that one of the key events was set at Stonehenge.

Good book. Interesting on every page. My favourite character was the guinea pig, Bubbles. I recommend the book.

Captain Honeycomb Bluebird 26.08.2021


I think I have found a new addicting series (with a lot of guinea pig poo)

It has funny writing

Dame June Chocolate-mousse 21.08.2021


I liked this book. It has some difficult words that I had to ask what it meant.

Baroness Heroica Rollercoaster 20.08.2021


It was a fiction. It was a really good story and had some very tricky and unusual words. I read this aloud to my mum and dad and it made them laugh. The author is the same person who wrote the Paddington film so is very funny.

Captain Quincy Elephant 10.08.2021


My favourite bit was when bubbles talked and when he was pooping everywhere. I have a guinea pig so I found this funny.

Superintendent Gonzo Waltzer 10.08.2021


I liked this book because it was very funny I would recommend it for people who like adventure stories.
