In My Wizard Buddy by Scott Spotson, Tyler Dunsmore is a lonely 11-year-old boy. When he wishes for a best friend he suddenly gets one. His wish is granted in the form of Dirk, an 11-year-old wizard who is not from Earth. Dirk needs some help since he doesn’t know much about Earth. He is willing to help Tyler as he learns more everyday. They come up with plans together. Some of the plans work, others don't. The botched plans leave Tyler wondering: is it good to have a wizard as a friend?


There were many elements to this book that made it enjoyable. The plot set up made the story flow nicely. Also, the details allowed me to imagine what was happening very easily. At a few points I felt confused by the book's events. I thought perhaps a few details could have been added to the story to clear up my confusion. This was a very good read and I would recommend it to anyone aged eight and above.
