9780983868507: Kaytek the Wizard

Kaytek, a mischievous schoolboy who wants to become a wizard, is surprised to discover that he is able to perform magic spells and change reality. He begins to lead a double life: a powerful wizard in the dress of an ordinary boy. It’s all great fun using magic to cause strange incidents in his school and neighborhood, but soon Kaytek’s increasing powers cause major chaos around the city of Warsaw. Disillusioned, he leaves the country and wanders the world in search of the meaning of his good intentions, his unique abilities, and their consequences. Revolving around the notion that power is not without responsibility, nor without repercussions, this story speaks to every child's dream of freeing themselves from the endless control of adults, and shaping the world to their own designs.

About the Author:

Janusz Korczak was the pen name of Dr. Henryk Goldszmit, a pediatrician and child psychologist who famously ran a central Warsaw orphanage on innovative educational principles; when his children were transported from the Warsaw Ghetto in 1942 Korczak insisted on staying with them and died with them in the Treblinka concentration camp. Korczak left behind a large written legacy, including books on education, plays, essays, letters, and of course, novels and stories for children, including King Matt the First. Antonia Lloyd-Jones is a translator of Polish literature. Her published translations from Polish include novels by Pawel Huelle and Olga Tokarczuk, short stories by Jaroslaw Iwaszkiewicz, and nonfiction by Ryszard Kapuscinski and Wojciech Tochman. Her translations of poetry have appeared in periodicals including the Edinburgh Review. Israeli illustrator Avi Katz has been the staff artist of the Jerusalem Report since its first issue in 1990, and is active in the Cartooning for Peace program. He has illustrated over 170 books in Israel and the U.S. and has received the National Jewish Book Award, the IBBY Hans Christian Andersen Honors (four times) and Israel's Ze'ev Prize (eight times).

Review:

"The story is riveting, complex and thought-provoking. Young Kaytek, filled with the fairy tales his mother and grandmother tell him, begins to study wizardry. His magic soon turns his streets, his school and all of Warsaw topsy-turvy....                                              Kirkus Reviews

Recommended. A fascinating Polish fantasy that will appeal to many ages. .. it's fun to read Kaytek the Wizard to compare it to modern fantasy.... Kaytek the Wizard is definitely an adventurous story and, in the end, I closed the book satisfied. --Bookfoolery and Babble

"Despite his mischievousness, Kaytek is an intelligent boy with a good heart. His story is quite enjoyable. Recommended." —Kasey Giard, Children's Literature

"When young students are exposed to a diversity of communication styles, even stories outside their own culture, they are more likely to accept differences . . . for youth to appreciate the diversity of human communication is a step towards tolerance and peace." —Craig Duffy, godinternational.org
