Info



Oil of Red Dog, a potion of “infinite” powers described in Wizards: An Amazing Journey through the Last Great Age of Magic (Greystone $22.95) calls for the body of one red-haired dog, 80 scorpions, a large amount of ground worms and a handful of St. John’s Wort leaves. Author Candace Savage, who recently released an adult book tracing the image of the witch through the last five centuries, takes young readers back to the 1500s and 1600s, a time when “real live boys studied to become wizards.” 1-55054-943-X (2003)—By Louise Donnelly
