Magical Wands: A Cornucopia of Wand Lore
It was only an old textbook that Professor Smith found while traveling by train through Scotland. A scholar of medieval history, he was on sabbatical studying old Scottish myths when he chanced to meet an old Scotsman and his granddaughter on their way to her new boarding school on the Isles of Skye. The young girl accidentally left the book behind, and Professor Smith picked it up with the intent of sending it on to her. But then he looked inside and discovered it was no ordinary book. It was a schoolbook on magic. This is that book. Can it be real? Can it have actually been left by accident and found by chance? Or was it all an elaborate hoax played on the unsuspecting professor? Did he ever find the hidden Isles of Skye School of Magick? Did he ever discover the hidden world of wizards and witches implied by the book's mere existence? Or did they find him? The answers are unknown, and you must decide for yourself.

A Must-Have for all Harry Potter Frantics!, May 27, 2015

By 

Arjun Randhawa

ACTUAL RATING: 4.5 Stars

I want you guys to know that I can rate a book very poorly and I won't care at ALL about what the author would say. But, this was a case in which I REALLY liked/loved this book.

This book is about Professor George Smith of Oregon State University who was on a Sabbatical to Scotland via a train. During his train journey, he comes across a family of two - A grandfather and his granddaughter. This book was being read by the granddaughter as she was on her way to the boarding school. She accidentally forgets this book in the train, but is found by the professor. To his surprise, he finds out that it is about Magical Wands and Wizardry.

The professor wishes to visit the school whose textbook this book was, so he sets off on an adventure to do so. He is said to have mysteriously disappeared from his hotel, university, home and even from the world. This book was published the university and the foreword is written by the professor. The Foreword is very enchanting tale of an ordinary man discovering what is so unexpected in this kind of a world.

The rest of the book contains perfectly described every information one needs to know about the world of wizardry. This is a book one would find in the library of Hogwarts (in Harry Potter series) . From ALL KINDS OF MAGICAL SPELLS to ALL KINDS OF MAGICAL CREATURES and WIZARDS - the book has it all ILLUSTRATED and DEFINED SIMPLY . The book will give you an insight to all the knowledge of the different kinds of wands and their importance as well as their properties.

The author has a magical wand shoppe (.com) from where I received a wand in order to EXPERIENCE the enchanted, which can never be possible by reading/watching any fantasy book/movie. The wand is beautiful, and it has semi precious stones fixed on both of its sides. It is no ordinary plastic/toy wand, but has been CARVED BY HAND from wand making trees like maple. Its shape is perfect and gives me a pleasure equal to that of casting a spell. IT IS DEFINITELY and TRULY RECOMMENDED for one TO BUY ANY DESIRED TYPE OF WAND FROM THIS WEBSITE. Your wand would be beautifully wrapped in a velvet box and it would be of a unique design, i.e. no other wand in the world would be of the same design. The author himself carves wands for everyone, and he makes 1 wand only of each type and design.

CONCLUSION: This book is a MUST-HAVE for all Harry Potter fans, or even any fantasy fan. You can even practice spells or LIVE/EXPERIENCE the fantasy you would have just imagined of magic, with the help of the author-made wands and this AMAZING BOOK! <3
