“As acting head of Kazam, an employment agency for magicians, orphan Jennifer Strange's life is already full of magical mayhem. When a prophecy proclaiming the death of the last dragon pops up, Jennifer may get a little more destiny than she bargained for. A chuckle-worthy page-turner for readers of all ages, Fforde's first young adult offering succeeds brilliantly with brains, heart, and a little bit of magic!”
— Jennifer Gough, Ebenezer Books, Johnson, VT

Description


In the good old days, magic was indispensable--it could both save a kingdom and clear a clogged drain. But now magic is fading: drain cleaner is cheaper than a spell, and magic carpets are used for pizza delivery. Fifteen-year-old foundling Jennifer Strange runs Kazam, an employment agency for magicians--but it's hard to stay in business when magic is drying up. And then the visions start, predicting the death of the world's last dragon at the hands of an unnamed Dragonslayer. If the visions are true, everything will change for Kazam--and for Jennifer. Because something is coming. Something known as . . . Big Magic.
