In the good old days, magic was powerful, unregulated by government, and even the largest spell could be woven without filling in magic release form B1-7g. Then the magic started fading away. Fifteen-year-old Jennifer Strange runs Kazam, an employment agency for soothsayers and sorcerers. But work is drying up. Drain cleaner is cheaper than a spell, and even magic carpets are reduced to pizza delivery. So it's a surprise when the visions start. Not only do they predict the death of the Last Dragon at the hands of a dragonslayer, they also point to Jennifer, and say something is coming. Big Magic ...

Jasper Fforde traded a varied career in the film industry for staring out of the window and chewing the end of a pencil. He lives and works in Wales and has a passion for aviation.


'True literary comic genius' -- Sunday Express 'This is Fforde's first book for children and as ever he is terrifically inventive and this is full of fun' -- Daily Telegraph 'Jasper Fforde has one of those effervescent imaginations that never throws in one joke when he can fit in two or three ... he created his mad but logical parallel version of the Welsh marches with loving detail' -- Independent 'This is a lively, witty and entertaining tale for older children who still like making silly faces.' -- Philip Womack, Literary Review 'Highly recommended. Very funny' -- Independent '[Fforde's] ripping yarn of magic in decline mashes up the usual spells-and-beasts motif with a satire on corporate cash and tabloid values.' -- i 'Every bit as imaginative and unique, comic and engaging as his adult books ... THE LAST DRAGONSLAYER is a fast, funny, entertaining, feel good read. Fans of Thursday Next will enjoy it whatever their age' -- www.fantasynibbles.com
