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 as Merdyn the wild came into Roses world from the dark age through the rivers of time.I thought it was funny. I would recommend this book.

I really enjoyed this book. It is a very fun read and I would highly recommended this book to other children. My favourite character is Rose because she is very thoughtful, kind and smart.

I would give it 4 and a half, but the ratings won’t let me. I found this book a bit confusing, even though I have already read it. It needs an extra chapter at the end to explain what happens to Merdyn. I thought it was very good and funny and I would recommend it to other people.

I liked the part when he time travelled and I would recommend this book to people who like fantasy stories

I liked this book as it was very humorous. The person I liked the most is Merdyn as he broke everything and spoke Latin. I would recommend this to someone else as it is very funny.

It's a very funny story! Especially because Merdyn the Wild is from the dark ages and he doesn't have his stick so he can't do good magic only basic spells. I would recommend this to all ages and prepared to have a laugh!

This book is about a wizard who time travels to the future and does a lot of funny and crazy things. I like the main characters because they made me laugh. I found the time travelling parts just a tiny bit scary. I would like my friends to read this book.

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

Duchess Fenella Racoon 12.09.2021


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

General July Fink 04.09.2021


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.
