The thrilling final showdown between Jennifer Strange and her most formidable foe

The Mighty Shandar is back! The most powerful wizard in the world returns to the Ununited Kingdom after failing to solve that pesky Dragon Problem, determined to get rid of the last two remaining dragons once and for all. If he fails, he must return the fee he was paid: eighteen dray-weights of gold, which at current prices is approximately eight trillion moolah (enough to pay for the Fifth Troll War and a down payment on the sixth). As Shandar''s agent, Miss D''Argento, affirms: "The Mighty Shandar doesn''t do refunds."

It shouldn''t be a problem for this Wizardus Maximus, but for one thing: a small House of Enchantment named Kazam stands in his way, led by acting manager Jennifer Strange . . .

Editorial Reviews

PRAISE FOR JASPER FFORDE:

"Fforde''s first kids'' fantasy is spoof, comic mayhem and sharp cultural criticism. . . . Reminiscent of Pratchett in tone, this is clever, suspenseful and engaging." -TORONTO STAR

"Fforde''s classic structure satisfies in the way that all good fairy stories do. Jennifer is given Exhorbitus, a sword so sharp that it cuts carbide as if it were a paper bag, and the Dragonslayer''s bulletproof Rolls-Royce. But it will be her inner resources that generate the brilliant twist that brings together all the strands of the tale into a magnificent climax." -THE INDEPENDENT (LONDON)
