    1. This is a worthy successor to the first one. You can tell they had a look at what worked in terms of plot and humour from the first series and made good use of that.There's a more cohesive over-arching plot and the ridiculous situations and misunderstandings are very clever.The only downside is the ending. Even my son thought it was a let-down. A case of the writers not knowing what to do and coming up with something totally lame.

    2. Catweazle, the magician, escapes a Norman dungeon by traveling through time 900 years forward to modern England. Here Catweazle befriends a young student, Cedric. Cedric is obsessed with finding the lost treasure of Lord Alfred rumored to be hidden somewhere on his family's estate. Together, they embark on a quest to discover the thirteen signs of the Zodiac and give Catweazle the magic power to fly.

    3. Carpenter brought Catweazle back for a repetitive sequel that does everything the first book does but in a not-so-interesting way. Unlike "Catweazle," this novel does feel childish and simplistic in the age old tradition of young adult books. It's a nice idea to bring back such a delightful character, but it's really pointless if the work doesn't give us anything fresh or new.

    4. The book is OK but the real magic is in the TV version. All time classic. Really I'd give the book 3 stars but the TV series 10 stars out of 5. To be honest, the book just cannot compare to the TV show.

    5. After I read "Catweazle" about ten times, I started reading this. I probably only read it five or six times.
