It all seems so simple. To stop the local library being closed down, Ms. Wiz sprinkles her special powder over a few books to bring them to life. But soon the greediest man in the world, some Flopsy Bunnies, and a very royal couple are on the loose. Jack and Podge are worried—this time, is Ms. Wiz really in control?

Terence Blacker, a British citizen, started writing full-time in 1983, and has since had a distinguished career authoring both adult and children’s books. His Ms. Wiz series includes more than 20 titles, and it has received many glowing reviews championing its zany humor and irresistibly witty characters. Mr. Blacker lives in Suffolk, England, and has two children.
Tony Ross was born in London and trained at the Liverpool School of Art. He has worked as a cartoonist, graphic designer, and art director of an advertising agency. He has illustrated hundreds of books that are adored by children, including the Horrid Harry series by Francesca Simon and the Amber Brown series by Paula Danziger. He has also written some of the books he has illustrated, such as the popular title, I Want Two Birthdays.From School Library Journal:
Grade 2–4—Originally published in England about 20 years ago, these short chapter books introduce a problem-solving witch with a strong sense of community consciousness. In Jail, with the aid of some magic from Ms. Wiz and a little courage of her own, a girl heroically saves the neighborhood felines, including her own beloved Waif, from being turned into expensive mittens. In Control, Ms. Wiz saves the local library from closing down by bringing influential people to life from the library's books—a potentially interesting spell that isn't fully explored. Neither of these installments creates a strong sense of who Ms. Wiz is; she is quite one-dimensional for one supposedly so magical. Although Ross's illustrations add a zany charm, both of these titles rely on weak humor and thin plotlines.—Lauren Anduri, Brooklyn Public Library, NY
