Mr Majeika

by
  • (15 reviews)

    Mr Majeika may teach at St Barty’s, an ordinary primary school, but he’s no ordinary teacher… Mr Majeika is a wizard! In the first book his arrival at the school sees him flying into Class Three through the window on a magic carpet. He then proceeds to turn the class nuisance, Hamish Bigmore, into a frog and conveniently forgets what the reversing spell is. Throughout the 15 books in the series, Mr Majeika goes on weird and wonderful adventures with the children from St Barty’s. New readers will love the short chapters packed with humour and excitement.
     
    Written by award-winning author Humphrey Carpenter, the books were first published in 1984 and adapted into a TV series for ITV in 1988.
