Summary (From the publisher):

You're off to see the wizards -- lots of them, in Oz and beyond -- in this dazzling and delightful collection drawn from classics of the whimsical and fantastical. Feeling Tempest-tossed? Pay a visit to Shakespeare's Prospero on his enchanted isle. Want to discover the secret powers of a creature you thought was mythical? Meet the Phoenix, a wise old bird who hatches from its flaming egg and wryly warns four astonished children: "Be careful; I am not cool yet." From Russian folklore comes the unpredictable witch Baba Yaga and the hapless young sorcerer who seeks her help -- and gets a comic comeuppance. Aladdin rubs his proverbial lamp, King Solomon's lost ring proves more powerful than bargained for, and young Nita Callahan of Hempstead, New York, answers Yes! to the question: So you want to be a wizard? Whether springing to life from the prodigious pen of C. S. Lewis (The Chronicles of Narnia) or the imagination of newcomers like Megan Whalen Turner, the magicians' daughters and sons, apprentices and wannabes, that populate The Book of Wizards will tickle and thrill, charm and transport. The Book of Wizards offers spells aplenty for every taste.
