Description

"A magical story full of humor and heart." --Katherine Applegate, Newbery-winning author of The One and Only Ivan

For fans of The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom comes an offbeat, comedic spin on the Excalibur legend told from the point of view of a talking dog who wants to be a magician! Meet Nosewise. He's spunky. He's curious. And he's a dog who can't understand why his pack mates Merlin and Morgana spend all day practicing magic tricks. If it's a trick they want, he's the dog to ask! He can already Sit!, Stay!, and Roll Over! But there's no way Nosewise is Stay!ing when his master and best friend, Merlin, is kidnapped. There's nothing Nosewise won't do to get Merlin back, even if it means facing the strange Fae people and their magic-eating worms, or tangling with the mysterious Sword in the Stone. But it may take more than sniffing out a spell to do it! Nosewise's hilarious escapades and steadfast loyalty get him and his companions through King Arthur's Dark Ages. "An entertaining adventure full of humor and magic" -Booklist "A delightful magical fantasy, perfect for fans of fairy tales, legends, and dogs." -School Library Journal "An ingenious and entirely credible (at least dog lovers will agree with this) twist on the familiar tale." -Kirkus Reviews "Nosewise is one of the silliest narrators around." --The Bulletin

About Eric Kahn Gale

Eric Kahn Gale started The Wizard's Dog as a joke for his fiancee. He would tease that their dog, Bowser, was fascinated by the magic doors in their apartment that let him outside or delivered him food. It was a short leap from a silly impersonation to the spunky voice of Nosewise. Eric is also the author of The Bully Book and The Zoo at the Edge of the World. He lives in Chicago with his fiancee and their nonmagical but entirely lovable dog, Bowser. You can find Eric on Twitter at @erickahngale and on Facebook.
