THE WIZARD IN THE TREE
New York : Dutton, 1975.
IL 5-8, RL 7.6
a Cinderella-type young girl doomed to be a kitchen-maid. Imagine her with
fairy stories swirling through her head -- the only thing left of her dead
mother's gifts to her -- everything else having been sold by her employer.
Now imagine her surprise at rescuing a real wizard who had been caught
in an elm tree the whole life of the elm! This book is about Malloy's escapades
trying to get the wizard to safety, his attempts and near misses at recapturing
his powers and their involvement with the Squire who has newly acquired
wealth and is plotting to be sole owner and provider of the town.
