Story Summary

Dahoe, Maine boasted its very own evil wizard - it said so right on the sign over his door, "Evil Wizard Books, Z. Smallbone, Prop." And the Evil Wizard always had an apprentice, but they never lasted long before they simply disappeared, turned into an animal or perhaps eaten by the evil wizard. That is until Nick Chanticleer ran away from his abusive Uncle on his eleventh birthday and ended up on the Evil Wizard's doorstep providing Zacheriah Smallbone with a new apprentice but this one with a determination to match his own.
