Editors Note 1 Poor Henry. It's not enough that his mother has sent him away from home to learn magic. It's not enough that everyone at his new school calls him Thornmallow because he's "prickly on the outside, squishy within". It's not enough that the only talent he shows at Wizard's Hall is an ability to make messes of even the simplest spells.
Annotation Eleven-year-old Henry leaves home to attend school at Wizard Hall where he hopes to develop his magic skills. Despite the fact that Henry's magic is quite weak, he is forced to fulfill an ancient prophecy and help overthrow an evil wizard. Will Henry be able to find a way to make his magic work for him?
First Line Thornmallow was a wizard, only the most minor of wizards. He had learned some elementary Spelling and a smattering of Names. He had not yet learned his Changes thoroughly, nor his Transformations.
