This is a delightful little book. A LITTLE book. I really wish it had been longer, because of the excellent nature of the material, but at least it's got gorgeous paper and cover art.
It follows the story of a few wizards, including Tomorrow Wizard (yes, that's his name) and his apprentice Murdoch. The two couldn't be more different--Murdoch doesn't just want to help humans, he wants to BE human.
It's a beautiful little story with enjoyable characters--the grumpy wizard thing is a bit overdone, but McLachlan manages to make it fresh and enjoyable. Murdoch is a delightful character. Both are written well, their dialogue sticking very well to their personalities.
Frankly, even without the story, I think I would have bought it alone for the cover art. It's expertly done and well-colored, so be sure to savor it.
This is a sweet (if short) read for fantasy buffs, especially those of you who love wizard stories.
