A magical tale for readers aged 7+ from the author of The Wishkeeper’s Apprentice, with gorgeous black-and-white illustrations throughout.

“A charming story brimming with magic and wonder." Hannah Gold

Late one night a flying house crash-lands in ten-year-old Callie's garden. It is the home of magician Winnifred and all of her magical artefacts. Winnifred asks for Callie's help finding her lost Wanderdust – until she realizes it is Callie's sadness that is causing her malfunctioning magic.

With Winnifred's most precious magical possessions at risk from malicious fairies and dangerous giants, can Callie and her friend Sam find the Wanderdust in time to save the magician?

Original, exciting and full of warmth, magic and heart, this is a tale that will sweep you away. - Sinéad O’Hart

“Sparkling with magic and heartfelt wonder, The Magician Next Door kept me smiling from cover to cover. Set amid the mystical wilds of Northern Ireland, Callie's quest to help a magician-in-need is a story to cherish.” - Jennifer Bell

A thrilling and magical adventure story, with just the right amount of threat for younger children. - Irish Independent

Excellent writing brings the reader into the world, and the magical sections are fun and exciting. Short, engaging chapters make this a good book for newly independent readers. The text is broken up with lots of decorative elements, as well as many warm and energetic full-page illustrations, helping readers to feel part of the story. - Inis Magazine, Children's Books Ireland
