The Evil Wizard Smallbone

Sherman, Delia. The Evil Wizard Smallbone.

Twelve-year-old Nick, escaping his awful uncle and cousin, runs away from home one snowy Maine night and ends up at Evil Wizard Books, presided over by Evil Wizard Zachariah Smallbone. While kept captive as the wizard’s boy-of-all-work, Nick explores the bookshop, teaching himself magic with the aid of a very snarky textbook – and eventually becomes embroiled in the wizard’s feud with the French werewolf Fidelou and his motorcycle-riding followers, who wish to conquer the strange little town of Smallbone Cove that the wizard has ruled for centuries. An out-of-the-ordinary fantasy.
