Grades 3 – 6
Ozzy’s parents, who are scientists, have been kidnapped after discovering a potion that induces mind control. Ozzy is only fourteen years old, and he needs help. Afraid to go to the police, Ozzy finds an ad in the paper for a “wizard for hire.” What does he have to lose? He answers the ad, and meets Rin, the wizard on the other side of it. Ozzy is skeptical at first, when he discovers that Rin doesn’t know any spells, but he gives Rin a chance, and can never imagine the adventure that lies ahead.
