Those who believe wizards began with Merlin and ended with Oz will be astounded and delighted by the journey that lies before them. In The Way of Wizards,
author/illustrator Tom Cross throws open the portal to a land of enchantment that we mere mortals have scarcely glimpsed.
Cross's incomparable illustrations, aided by the narrative of his inimitable wizard guide, Penelo, transport readers back to the Crossroad of the Realms -- the dawn of time itself -- and forward into eternity, revealing the presence throughout time of wizardly magic and might.
Who are these beings? Where are they? How and why do they work their wonders? This brilliantly conceived and lavishly illustrated book seeks the answers to these questions in history, myth, lore, and legend, and in the process illuminates the traces of wizardry to be found in the sparkle of yesterday's frost and the green-gold of tomorrow's sunset.
Cross's re-creation of the world of wizards is an act of singular imaginative power. It will utterly captivate readers young and old. Spellbinding from cover to cover, The Way Of Wizards is pure magic.
