    Taking place almost a year after the first book this second instalment of Wu and Spotson s YA fantasy series sees Tyler and Dirk s roles reversed as Dirk is now the one showing his non magical friend around his incredible world of Adgiligda Almost from the very beginning chapter 2 in fact we are given a guided tour of this amazing world which includes the gravity defying Wizardium, the clockwork way the seasons are designed, incredible houses seven hundred and eighty fee above the ground with Taking place almost a year after the first book this second instalment of Wu and Spotson s YA fantasy series sees Tyler and Dirk s roles reversed as Dirk is now the one showing his non magical friend around his incredible world of Adgiligda Almost from the very beginning chapter 2 in fact we are given a guided tour of this amazing world which includes the gravity defying Wizardium, the clockwork way the seasons are designed, incredible houses seven hundred and eighty fee above the ground with no doors and the most convenient way of travelling Anyone reading this, young or not so young, can only wish these things were possible in the real world Also, referring back to the first book, there is also a belated introduction to Dirk s favourite game of killer ball.Once again the themes of social order, fitting in and bullying are addressed This time things take on amenacing aspect however as prejudice in a most extreme for is introduced In the previous book Dirk had to keep his identity secret because the truth was too incredible to let out Now Tyler tries to keep his secret because Dirk s race despise and are hostile to what they consider a savage and inferior species, one they dealt with a long time ago Even Dirk s own parents, upon discovering that their dinner guest is from Earth, scold their son for bringing home a puppy, one who doesn t know any better Bullying is also muchof an issue Tyler is in very real physical danger this time as he comes up against three nasty young wizards in particular who refer to him as that thing and believe that as an undesirable on their world he needs to be punished.Wizard Planet is an excellent sequel, one painted on a much broader canvass than the first book which sees the main character once again developing an inner strength and self belief and this time battling far greater obstacles culminating in an actual wizard trial against him.I personally enjoyed the first book a littleas I was able to relate to the actual story better but this is an excellent and in many ways a perfect sequel to its predecessor

    The adventures of Tyler and Dirk continue, and readers are whisked away to a magical planet of wizards This is good fun for young readers Exciting with creative new creatures as well Think crocodiles with paint guns Hats off to the author for great new chapter.

    This is a sequel to My Wizard Buddy , and isengaging than the first book Tyler visits his wizard friend Dirk on the planet Adgiligda, and is amazed by its inventiveness, as compared to Earth He meets Dirk s parents, Fiesta and Joyd, who are not very pleased to meet him wizards and humans have a longstanding animosity, apparently We get to see the inside of Dirk s house and how his family lives they teleport into their house and from room to room and can conjure up the food they want This is a sequel to My Wizard Buddy , and isengaging than the first book Tyler visits his wizard friend Dirk on the planet Adgiligda, and is amazed by its inventiveness, as compared to Earth He meets Dirk s parents, Fiesta and Joyd, who are not very pleased to meet him wizards and humans have a longstanding animosity, apparently We get to see the inside of Dirk s house and how his family lives they teleport into their house and from room to room and can conjure up the food they want and zap up the clothes they want to wear He goes to Dirk s school and encounters wizard bullies, Victoria, Traf, and Gus, and, thanks to them, later plunges into unexpected adventures involving the dreadful alligator creatures, Borolex The world created is imaginative and exciting, but the characters come across as one dimensional and the ending is too abrupt

    I read Wizard Planet My Wizard Buddy 2 without reading the first part and found that it works pretty well as a standalone read There is enough information about the first part in the initial pages to make connections However, I wish these were presented in a better form right now, it feels like information dumping,tell than show Apart from this, I found the book to be quite entertaining Tyler, the human protagonist visits Dirk s home planet and gets into several adventures that are e I read Wizard Planet My Wizard Buddy 2 without reading the first part and found that it works pretty well as a standalone read There is enough information about the first part in the initial pages to make connections However, I wish these were presented in a better form right now, it feels like information dumping,tell than show Apart from this, I found the book to be quite entertaining Tyler, the human protagonist visits Dirk s home planet and gets into several adventures that are engaging I liked the way the authors have conjured the world of the wizards with two Suns and thirty five planets and many other interesting details While the teleporting hub, the Hall of Mirrors and the Borolox Forest are novel ideas that make you want to go exploreof the planet, I felt some parts had a Harry Potter hangover For instance, the Wizardium and the Death Ball game Also, by introducing the Wizard bullies, the authors have kind of played into a tricky zone why should everything in a completely new planet remind you of something so close to home Finally, the interesting part about the relationship between wizards and earthlings has not been developed completely, something I think would have given the storydepth.So yes, the book pulled me in two different directions There were parts that I thoroughly enjoyed and parts that were just so so But I guess that s because I ve read quite a few wizard stories All in all, it is a good, well paced story and I ll definitely recommend it to kids who have not yet read too many books in this genre.I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest, non reciprocal review

    Wizard Planet is set a year after My Wizard Buddy and contains a lot of the same strengths and weaknesses The story, this time, moves its focus to Dirk s home world and so a lot of the situations from the first story i.e confusion when such as meal time confusion have simply been reversed It s still light hearted fun, but I just didn t feel that it achieved anything new There is still no real complexity to the characters the story is simply mindless fun.However, unlike the first book, t Wizard Planet is set a year after My Wizard Buddy and contains a lot of the same strengths and weaknesses The story, this time, moves its focus to Dirk s home world and so a lot of the situations from the first story i.e confusion when such as meal time confusion have simply been reversed It s still light hearted fun, but I just didn t feel that it achieved anything new There is still no real complexity to the characters the story is simply mindless fun.However, unlike the first book, this one did eventually settle on a single storyline The result made this story a little darker than the first one There are a couple of chapters where Tyler is targeted by wizard bullies which are surprisingly unpleasant for a middle grade novel and so this is possibly something to bear in mind if you intend to buy the story as a gift.There are also a few passages that contradict events in the first story For example, it describes that Dirk and Tyler fell out after they were chased by monsters This didn t cause their fall out it was because Tyler almost fell to his death while being attacked by a giant octopus that Dirk had conjured Additionally, the Borolax last time were dressed in paintball paraphernalia because Dirk thought it was funny but this time it just seems to be a feature of their race they all carry paintball guns I felt that maybe the novel could have done with a tighter edit to pick up on some of this errors.All in all, I think that this was a slightly better book than the first but it was still nothingthan a light read It s fun but don t expect any depth

    There was no messing around with this book Before you knew it, Tyler had been transported to the wizard planet, where he was soon left to fend for himself It seemed a bit strange that his wizard buddy left him hanging so much I must say that I felt Dirk was not a very gracious host, and that wizards in general, as portrayed in this book, are not a nice bunch.I would recommend that you read the first book before diving into this one, as there are a few references to the previous story that are There was no messing around with this book Before you knew it, Tyler had been transported to the wizard planet, where he was soon left to fend for himself It seemed a bit strange that his wizard buddy left him hanging so much I must say that I felt Dirk was not a very gracious host, and that wizards in general, as portrayed in this book, are not a nice bunch.I would recommend that you read the first book before diving into this one, as there are a few references to the previous story that are important to this storyline but are not explained Why do crocodiles play paintball How did Tyler speak to spirits What s up with the Seers of Duns I felt these needed a bitexplanation in this instalment for this to work well if you discovered this as a standalone book The steady stream of scenes and action may be enough to keep younger readers happy There really is no let up in Tyler s troubles from the moment he is transported to the planet I did feel that, at points, the story needed to slow down a bit and go intodetail For example, the final trial felt like it was glossed over and the outcome felt a bit contrived Kids who like adventure tales may enjoy this book, there is a lot going on, and the action is relentless Kids who want characters and story telling with a bitdepth may find themselves disappointed

    Wizard Planet is Scott Spotson and Brian Wu s second book in this series I highly recommend reading these books in proper order because the first book gives a nice, solid background for the second book It s not essential, but it s certainly preferred.Further, the second book is a fascinating role reversal of the first book The first book takes place on this planet The second book takes place on an alien planet How creative In addition, conflicts vary by the planet, and escalate by th Wizard Planet is Scott Spotson and Brian Wu s second book in this series I highly recommend reading these books in proper order because the first book gives a nice, solid background for the second book It s not essential, but it s certainly preferred.Further, the second book is a fascinating role reversal of the first book The first book takes place on this planet The second book takes place on an alien planet How creative In addition, conflicts vary by the planet, and escalate by the page The prejudice and racism turn very ugly very fast Most victims, and innocent bystanders, have a very hard time dealing with racism This book confronts that type of ugliness There s lots of action, confrontation, and suspense I m looking forward to reading the third book

    This is the second book in the My Wizard Buddy series I haven t read the first instalment, but the authors work around the fact that readers might be starting from book 2 by giving us a lot of information from the previous book.I enjoyed the descriptions of Dirk s home planet, e.g how the seasons were divided up The seers of Duns seemed like interesting characters, and their possible connection to Tyler might lend itself to another Wizard Buddy sequel.I realized while reading this that I This is the second book in the My Wizard Buddy series I haven t read the first instalment, but the authors work around the fact that readers might be starting from book 2 by giving us a lot of information from the previous book.I enjoyed the descriptions of Dirk s home planet, e.g how the seasons were divided up The seers of Duns seemed like interesting characters, and their possible connection to Tyler might lend itself to another Wizard Buddy sequel.I realized while reading this that I hadn t read a story with an omniscient narrator in a long time I would prefer to have read about the adventures from the point of view of either main character, or switching back and forth I think a good editor could successfully bring out the potential in this story

  10. M.M. Strawberry Library & Reviews says:

    I have to say that out of the three books in this series, I like the cover for this one the best I also really like the name the authors came up with for the wizard world, Adgiligda It just has a lovely flow to it It s also really good that the Wizard Buddy was a nice kid, because some of the kids on Adgiligda are real stinkers.Like the first book, this one is age appropriate for its intended audience and would be a good read for kids.
