Oliver was a very minor mage. His familiar reminded him of this several times a day. He only knew three spells, and one of them was to control his allergy to armadillo dander. His attempts to summon elementals resulted in nosebleeds, and there is nothing more embarrassing than having your elemental leave the circle to get you a tissue, pat you comfortingly, and then disappear in a puff of magic. The armadillo had about wet himself laughing. He was a very minor mage. Unfortunately, he was all they had.… (més)

This is a really cute, fun novella about a young (very young) wizard sent off to bring the rain home to his village. I thought the concept and execution had the feel of some of the fantasy stories I read when I was a kid, so I wasn't at all surprised to read in the afterword that the author thinks it's a children's book. (However, it seems her publisher disagreed, since it's published under T. Kingfisher instead of Ursula Vernon.) While it does get dark in places, I don't feel that it gets too dark for anyone the age of the protagonist (12-years-old) to read and enjoy. However, I also don't feel you need to be young to enjoy this one; adults will get as much enjoyment from it as teens, though perhaps they will find that enjoyment in different places.

I do really appreciate how different themes from classic fairy tales and fables are woven together in this story, and the way the hurdles are big, but not insurmountable. This is a very enjoyable read, with lots of fun quotes and good messages. I highly recommend it. ( )

This definitely read like a middle grade book, not an adult book, despite what the author's agents and draft readers said. ( )

Oliver is a very minor mage. He only knows three spells and has an armadillo for a familiar. That doesn't stop him from setting off on a quest to bring rain back to his drought-stricken village when the villagers demand Oliver's help. Oliver is the only mage they have.

I don't care what the editor thinks, this is a charming middle grade tale about believing in yourself, doing the right thing and helping your friends. The story is told in a style that reminds me of one of Grimm's Fairy Tales, including some scary moments and a couple deep themes. It's an interesting blend of lightheartedness and melancholy as Oliver travels on his quest, making some profound realizations about the world.

Oliver is 12 years old and a determined hero even though he has self doubts. This makes him highly him relatable. Who didn't have doubts when they were that age? Or your current age for that matter? I know I did and do. The armadillo is wonderfully snarky and a loyal companion for his minor mage. Oliver meets some interesting people on his journey, including a young bard named Trebastian. Vernon's creativity is amazing. I have no idea how she thought up his very odd ability of making harps. I would read a whole book based on that idea. ( )
