Author Info
Avi Wortis is known to his readers simply as Avi. Raised in New York City, he was ironically assigned a tutor in high school to help him with his writing. His first novel, WHO WAS THAT MASKED MAN, ANYWAY?, was published in 1992 while he was working as a librarian. Avi writes historical fiction, fantasies, thrillers, and comic novels. In 1991, THE TRUE CONFESSIONS OF CHARLOTTE DOYLE was named a Newbery Honor Book and winner of the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award for Fiction. In 2003, CRISPIN: THE CROSS OF LEAD received the much-coveted Newbery Medal.
Praise
"Combining action, silliness and enough step-by-step explanations to help readers figure out the mystery, this enjoyable historical tale should appeal to the author's many younger fans and send them off to read--or reread--MIDNIGHT MAGIC."
"The plot never takes a break, rushing from encounter to encounter in true audience-pleasing style; the intrigue unfolds naturally without bogging down the main event."
"Although it's recommended for middle-grade readers, this charming mystery has a universal appeal. Set in a deliciously eerie 15th-century Italy, it's a fable about the magic of knowledge and invention....The novel's language is simple and elegant, and the characters quote philosophers and poets. This is smart, sweet fun."
From the Publisher
Editors Note Falsely accused of plotting to overthrow King Claudio, scholarly Mangus the magician, along with his street-smart servant boy, Fabrizio, face deadly consequences unless they can track down the real traitor by the stroke of midnight.
Annotation This prequel to MIDNIGHT MAGIC shares a thrilling story of suspense and drama as Mangus and Fabrizio find themselves embroiled in a dangerous political coup. A magician, Mangus is training Fabrizio, a 10-year-old orphan who is now in his service. Fabrizio is suspicious of magic, but soon changes his tune when the pair gets into big trouble. Jailed for supposedly planning to throw King Claudio from the throne, they must prove their innocence before midnight, or else!
