High Wizardry Book Review

High Wizardry Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

Nita and Kit are back. And so is Nitas sister Dairine. Oh yeah, two things -Dairine, being as young as she is, is a wizard with almost limitless power, and her wizards manual is an Apple computer.

Author: Diane Duane

High Wizardry, is the third book in Diane Duane's extraordinary Young Wizard series. Like the previous books in the series, this promises adventure, excitement and some thought-provoking ideas. Hey, if you're a fantasy and science fiction fan - then this is a wizardry for you!


Our favorite wizards, (I'm telling you, they're right up there with Harry and his pals!) Kit and Nita, are up against the The Lone Power (who makes Voldemort seem like a pussycat) yet again. And that's not all. That's right, we saw her coming at the end of Deep Wizardry and now she's here. Nita's little sister, 10 year-old Dairine has officially received her wizard's manual. Oh yeah, two things - Dairine, being as young as she is, is a wizard with almost limitless power, and her wizard's manual is an Apple computer (I can see the feature film product placement already.)


Being a novice wizard is not without its risk. Dairine nearly folds the known universe inside out with her first attempt at a space-time slide. It is the first of a series of spells that takes us jump after jump across the galaxy. That's right fantasy fans, this is a wizardry of the techno-space variety.


Diane Duane creates as much magic as her wizards, in each addition of her Young Wizards Series.

    What do the Witch & Wizard Cards Do?

    • Each witch or wizard tells a different joke.
    • They can all get up and battle like chess pieces!
    • The picture on each card moves like it's a real person.
    • Nothing, they're just pictures on cardboard.

    As I said, what you think is entirely up to you. I think soon I'll make a story saying my self-confidence. :rainbow

I Just looked it up and Here is what i found....: At the dawn of agriculture, about 8000 B.C., the population of the world was approximately 5 million. Over the 8,000-year period up to 1 A.D. it grew to 200 million (some estimate 300 million or even 600, suggesting how imprecise population estimates of early historical periods can be), with a growth rate of under 0.05% per year. A tremendous change occurred with the industrial revolution: whereas  it had taken all of human history until around 1800 for world population to reach one billion , the second billion was achieved in only 130 years (1930), the third billion in less than 30 years (1959), the fourth billion in 15 years (1974), and the fifth billion in only 13 years (1987). During the 20th century alone, the population in the world has grown from 1.65 billion to 6 billion. In 1970, there were roughly half as many people in the world as there are now. Because of declining growth rates, it will now take over 200 years to double again. So, There are definitely more people on earth now...huh?  Bravo
