Wizard’s Guide to Wellington by A.J. Ponder
An adventure for the young at heart through Wellington City, including Miramar, Eastbourne, and the Wellington Waterfront.
Alec’s Dad is kidnapped, his mysterious English cousin, Perrin, has gone missing, and he has found a talking book that insists the ground beneath his feet is dangerous – and alive!
Perrin has arrived at Wellingtowne Airport only to discover Ike, her cantankerous wizarding guide, has disappeared. Worse, her uncle is missing and she is all alone in the dangerous city of Wellingtowne.
Ghosts, taniwhas, magic … and a warning: “Bad men watch you”. Something is very wrong, and it’s up to the two cousins to rescue Wellingtowne & Wellington.
“Wizards and a taniwha running wild in Wellington – who would have thought it. Perrin’s adventures in the capital city are fun to follow and full of surprises. My (unpointy) hat is off to Alicia Ponder. Now where’s my broom…”
“Fantastic story – setting – character –full of tension and surprises – very cool.”
“Alicia Ponder has conjured a whirlwind of wizardry that will have you reaching for the nearest broomstick in this delightfully wild and unpredictable tale of magic, monsters and mayhem.”
Emanuel E Garcia
“A truly magical book.”
