Valentine's Day 2015

Wizard in Love (cover image)

February 14 is Valentine's Day. Celebrate this day with the ones you love with a Canadian kids' book. We suggest A Wizard in Love by Mireille Levert and Marie Lafrance (Tundra Books, 2009).

Hector, a retired wizard, lives with his cat, Poison, in a dilapidated house at the edge of the forest. Their days are peaceful and quiet until a dreadful noise pours
out of an old abandoned house nearby. It seems they have a new neighbour, and things will never be the same again. This title is also available in French as Sorcier amoureux.
