I love this book the plot is full of lots of twists.Wish did revive , however Xar did not realize that the witch also escaped after reviving.My favourite character was Xar because he was very courageous.And when you thought his life couldn’t get any worse he made it up to the whole encampment of wizards.I think Cressida Cowell is a very talented author and would defiantly recommend this book to any ‘How to train your dragon.’ fans. I could read this book over and over again and it would always be awesome. Erin George Romney

I really like this book! My favourite character was Wish because she knew what she had done wrong and tried to fix it. I did not expect that ending. I would rate it 4.5 out of 5! I would recommend this book to anyone who likes magic and adventure. This is the first time I have read any of Cressida Cowell’s books however I would defiantly read another one!

The Wizards of Once is a brilliant book that whisks you away into a fantasy land of adventure, courage, magic and friendship. Cressida Cowell is an amazing writer and should be an idol for the world. My favourite character is Wish for her determination to succeed; her kindness to even her Mother’s enemies and her lovingness towards every living creature. I liked Xar because he was full of mischief and self-importance, though his heart was in the right place. he would do anything for his ‘followers’. I rate this book 9 out of 10. Cara Smith
