Thomas Wildus and The Book of Sorrows

We rated this book:


Join Thomas Wildus, the eponymous lead of Bergen’s Thomas Wildus & the Book of Sorrows, as this young boy begins the adventure of a lifetime. And it all starts with a mysterious bookshop, of course!

Thomas stumbled across a bookshop he’d never seen before. It is here that Thomas finally finds a real magic book. Huxley, the proprietor, loans Thomas the book, giving him several rules to follow with regard to being its custodian. In return, Thomas will donate five hours of his time every week helping in the bookstore until he’s finished with the book.

I loved this story! It was so much fun! There were a lot of snarky commentaries, like the Percy Jackson books. The whole aspect of having the inner potential for magic awakened and measured, using a book that tells of the first wizards, was pretty cool. The more a person reads, and the greater the potential, the faster the cover becomes illuminated, as in an old manuscript’s illumination.

Highly recommended!
