Terence Blacker, a British citizen, started writing full-time in 1983, and has since had a distinguished career authoring both adult and children’s books. His Ms. Wiz series includes more than 20 titles, and it has received many glowing reviews championing its zany humor and irresistibly witty characters. Mr. Blacker lives in Suffolk, England, and has two children.
Tony Ross was born in London and trained at the Liverpool School of Art. He has worked as a cartoonist, graphic designer, and art director of an advertising agency. He has illustrated hundreds of books that are adored by children, including the Horrid Harry series by Francesca Simon and the Amber Brown series by Paula Danziger. He has also written some of the books he has illustrated, such as the popular title, I Want Two Birthdays.From School Library Journal:
Grade 2–4—Class 3 is the "problem group" of St. Barnabas School, but when Miss Wisdom takes over, things are never the same. A "paranormal operative" (the term "witch" is outdated, she insists), Ms. Wiz and Herbert, her pet rat, promise "no unpleasant spells—unless they're deserved." In Trouble, Ms. Wiz brings her magical touch to classroom life, including art drawings that become real and multiplication drills with a barn owl that "makes a guano" at each wrong answer. In Stitches, young Jack goes in for an operation, but the stuffy hospital staff isn't prepared for "Dr. Wisdom." Suddenly stethoscopes begin picking up disco music, injection needles bend, and lab mice are running through the halls. Unlike the characters in Harry Allard's "Miss Nelson" series (Houghton), who poke gentle fun at rigid authority, Blacker's adult power figures don't come off especially well here. The befuddled head teacher picks his nose in assembly, the school inspector loses his pants when Herbert runs into his underwear, and two intrusive teachers get their noses glued to the classroom window. Ross's angular black-and-white drawings complement the sometimes wacky plotlines. These short, off-the-wall stories will appeal to both transitional and reluctant readers.—Elaine E.
