Selected as a title in Tom Fletcher's Book Club 2018! ------------- A debut series from the mega-talented Zach King, full of laughs, zany action and more than a hint of magic.

Eleven-year-old Zach has magical powers, just like everyone in his family, but he's having trouble harnessing his abilities... Obviously being magical, but not being able to use his abilities isn't exactly great for Zach
So, his parents decide he needs to be around real people. No more home schooling- it's time to go to the scary world of secondary school! But Zach can't resist a bit of magic... A simple spell ends with him and his best friend stuck in a vending machine. Someone filmed it and by the next day he's gone viral on YouTube, getting the attention of Rachel, the prettiest girl at school. With everyone wondering how Zach does his tricks, and with head mean girl Trisha plotting to bring him down, Zach's got his work cut out if he's going to survive year 7 and keep his dreams of becoming a master magician intact.

My 8 year old had whizzed through this by himself. Beautifully presented and well spaced lines which made it enjoyable to read alone. It’s a fun story and a brilliant bonus is the downloadable app which brings the pages to life and has some fun games, we have all had great fun with this!  Couldn’t recommend this one enough!

I enjoyed following Zach on his journey to find his 'object' to apply his magic. Zach is magical, he comes from a magical family but he seems to be actually lacking the ability to perform magic- well that is until he attends a normal school with normal people. That's when things begin to change for Zach.

I really liked the premise, you really can't go wrong with injecting a little magic into your life. I thought the the story was well written, the imagery was bold and colourful, i felt engaged straight away.

I didn't actual know that the book was based on the Youtuber Zach King until after i read the book, and i thought that was pretty cool.

When i read the blurb I was looking forward to reading the book. Zach sounded like a normal kid and I like watching youtube, which is in the book and I thought thay was pretty cool. I was a bit dissppointed I cant get thr app yet as I was pretty excited. I will be able to download it later on in the month, so will definitely be doing that. I really liked the bold and colourful illustrations. At the start of the book are pictures and descriptions of the characters which I liked. I also liked how bits of the book were set out like a comic strip. I really got into the book and didnt want to put it down. It was really funny and I hope they do another book.  Bitd made me laugh out loud, like when zach got stuck inside a snack machine. Even though the main character is a boy the book will appeal to girls as well. Would definitely recommend.

Hollie liked the part of the book when zach tried to save tricia from the crocodile. She didnt like it when the crocodile chomped on zach"s snapback. Hollie thought that some of the characters were mean and some were nice, her favourite characters in the book were aaron and zach himself. Hollie enjoyed the story and she would recommend it to others.

I read this book as I love anything to do with magic. It was so fun to read and it kept me entertained for a solid 5 days whilst on school holidays. I would definitely recommend this as it is now my favourite book. 

The storyline is funny and interesting and has lots going on so I didn't get bored once.

What a brilliant book. It kept me hooked. I didn't want to stop reading it. I love magical books, I liked the main characters except Tricia, she's mean and a bully. The book had alot of action, and was funny in sections. I loved the ending and can't wait for the next one. A definite must read.

10 year old loved this book.  He's a reluctant reader so the fact that he was a big fan of Zach King was a huge motivation for him to pick up the book. Zach's magic tricks are imaginative and have inspired my son to take out a library book on Magic.  Cartoon illustrations were very accessible and definitely held his attention. Great for fans of the you tube star.

I like this book a lot. Zach is very funny and very mischevious. He likes magic and can't resist doing it when he shouldnt. 
This book is fun and I didn't want to put it down. I read it with my mum at bedtime and every night I couldnt wait for the story

I decided to read this book because it seemed a bit like Harry Potter, one of my all time favourite books. However, it was pretty much the complete opposite; it evolves around a boy who comes from a magical family who seems incapable of doing magic at all.  However, once he starts gong to a normal school with normal people, he discovers his magical object, and uses his magic to become famous on YouTube (as well as impressing a girl he like). I didn't originally know that it was written and based on Zach King, a YouTuber magician (although most of the story is complete fiction!) I would definitely recommend it. I also look forward to reading the book based upon YouTuber gamer Ali A, as, although I don't watch his videos, my brothers name is Ali Asghar (coincidentally!)
