SUMMARY Wizard's Hall î PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Poor Henry It’s not enough that his mother has sent him away from home to learn magic It’s not enough that everyone at his new school calls him Thornmallow because he’s “pr. After learning that this book preceded Harry Potter and the Philosopher s Stone and that its author Jane Yolen feels that Rowling stole all of her ideas from Wizard s Hall and is remarkably grumpy about the Harry Potter series even though the story moves along I just don t feel like they re well written and I always tell people that if Ms Rowling would like to cut me a very large cheue I would cash it and Rowling s prose is terrible I just had to read this bookSure Wizard s Hall has similarities to the Potter series but it isn t remotely epic like Rowling s 7 tome creation Nor are the similarities damning Yolen says Wizard s Hall has got a boy named Henry who goes to wizard school doesn t think he has talent He has a good friend with red hair There s a wicked wizard who s trying to destroy the school and the pictures on the wall move and speak and change That s all she s got So Bridget Jones Diary Pride and Prejudice And everyone is now stealing from the Twilight series even though vampire mythology has been around since prehistoric times Ideas are like flowers just because one rose resembles another doesn t mean either is a clone However none of this gristmill of ridiculous bile makes a damn bit of difference if one tries to take Wizard s Hall as a stand alone children s bookAnd as one I liked it Not immensely But I liked it I thought of Harry Potter only once when the main character forgot his wizard s robe in the wardrobe Otherwise the clever bits in this book bear only a passing resemblance to the clever bits in Rowling s and they aren t nearly as well fleshed outBut that s ok And in fact for what I was hoping I hear it s ok to end a sentence with a preposition these days but I fear Yolen will read this someday and come after me My son is a prolific reader at age six he s not ready for the dark epic themes of Potter But he can probably handle most of this book though it does get a little creepy during the final showdown and for that I am gratefulThis is a uick read with sketchy outlines that are perfect for young readers Yolen peppers her prose with wisdom most of it coming in italicized sayings by the main character s dear ma like Better take care than need care and Secrets is like wounds can t be cleansed until opened and Expectations always disappoint and Good folk think bad thoughts bad folk act on em and most tellingly for the plot and moral of the book Talent don t matter It only matters that you try With that she kisses him three times once on each cheek for love and once on the forehead for wisdom and sends him packing to Wizard s HallYolen engages in some amusing humor Henry becomes Thornmallow a name which no one can seem to remember Thornpillow said Magister Hickory Marrow corrected Magister Beechvale Mallow sueaked ThornmallowAnd when the kids are in the library trying to figure out how to defeat the dark wizard they come upon a solution that seems to easy to Thornmallow Besides if we thought of it why didn t the Magisters Probably because it is to simple and too easy Gorse said Have you ever noticed how grown ups try to complicate everything Make it harder than it is Like grown up food with too many sauces And grown up clothes with too many buttons added Tansy And grown up manners Will said With too many shoulds and shouldn ts But this is not an overtly funny book For me it was an entertaining confection But for my kid it may well be a tome that with its three great themes will resonate deeply in his psyche Words mean somethingWhen the head of the school has confronted the dark wizard and is deflated he begins to tell a story And clearly as Magister Hickory spoke the very act of speaking the words telling the story re creating another time gave him life Just as the words spoken by the awful Master had brought him a kind of death The Fine LineBy black my prickly friend I do not mean evil Or wicked I mean dark and deep as in the black water of the deepest lakes All those strongest of emotions that if used improperly tempt us to wicked evil deeds For example ambition which can become greed Or desire which can become gluttony Or admiration which can become envy We are all made up of such deep and dark emotions and as we grow mature we learn to control them Always try AlwaysAnd Jane Yolen is overly fond of italics Just saying
