Summary

Elijah Muddle’s life changed in an instant. The son of a spiteful and mean manure farmer, Elijah now has become an apprentice to the town’s warlock, Caliban. The chance to escape his terrible father and learn magic? It’s a dream come true! Until...it turns out that Elijah’s internal magic is wonky, and he is the absolute worst warlock ever - all his spells go wildly wrong, causing both hilarious and disastrous consequences all over town. 

Now, everyone in town is furious at Elijah, including Caliban and his dangerous jaguar familiar. Elijah tries desperately to correct his magic with the help of his best friends Marcus the thief and Tori the blacksmithing barbarian. The trio contends with the Nighty-Knights, angry mobs, and a ridiculously dangerous and forbidden spell. Will Elijah succeed? Find out in this clever and funny audiobook from A. A. Livingston & Dan Livingston.

in response to Pauls Review

Great Book. Paul you do realise the dropped T's are the accents of the characters? Not every Britt is educated at Eton the T's being dropped is pretty standard for working class accents. What a silly comment.

it was amazing. the story was good, the only thing was that the narrator kept not saying the letter t. It doesnt have to be perfect but if you could improve it just a little, it would be great. thankyou.

Moral of the story

I was the wrong audience for this tale. As an adult I found it somewhat boring; the story was geared more towards the adolescent so I really can’t speak for them. However, I give it a high score for its moral intent. The moral of the story is that connivance leads to trouble and unselfish intent is rewarding.

Good clean humorous take on magic!

I appreciate that the author did not stoop to toilet humor, but was original and funny! I'd recommend this for adults and children alike!

A must-listen

This story was very entertaining with twists and humor and a great moral lesson. I recommend this to anyone who feels like they just can’t seem to do anything right.
Carey Mulligan shines reading this book. She did a wonderful job with the different voices and inflections; the characters really came to life.

Surprising Fantastic!

Absolutely entertaining, especially if you like Harry Potter with a twist of Terry Pratchett mixed in! Pure magic it was!

What a fun story!

This was a well paced, well written, and well narrated story. I enjoyed this very much and look forward to continuing on future adventures with this rag tag group of friends.

Very entertaining for adults and young adults.

Full of whimsical mischief and good clean humor. Would have said appropriate for all ages, but the death of the villain was a bit gruesome. Still, overall greatly entertaining and you can't beat the price as an Audible included title.

A most enjoyable listen!

Carey Mulligan is a notable actress, but she is spectacular as a book reader. This story is great, but her performance takes it to next level. The book is very family friendly, perfect for a long car ride. Would very much like to hear more from her and these authors.

1st book

This was my first book on Audible and I wanted something to help get me used to listen to a book instead of reading. This was a nice little fantasy with a great story line.
