Have you ever wished that instead of having to do your chores all by yourself that someone--or something--would help you get them done faster? That's exactly the way the sorcerer's apprentice felt one day when the sorcerer left him all alone to clean the castle, so he tried to do some magic of his own, and ended up in a bubbly mess! Ultimately the young apprentice finds that passion and hard work, tempered with patience and discipline, can make the most magical dreams come true.

About the Author:

Cyril Bavis is a full-time homemaker and part-time author who loves to write and share stories with his family. Growing up around the publishing industry, Cyril was introduced to the art of storytelling as a young man and has loved the creative process ever since. Cyril lives in Ontario, Canada, with his wife, Mandi, and two sons, Caius and Tiernan.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-K—Based on the 1797 poem written by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and made famous as one of the segments of Disney's Fantasia, the story features Tiernan, the apprentice, who is chosen by the Sorcerer because of his "hidden gifts." Tiernan's job at the castle is cleaning and organizing, though he is fascinated by magic and studies spells when he can. When the Sorcerer leaves Tiernan alone for the first time, Tiernan resorts to magic to help him accomplish the final task: sweeping and mopping. However, the magic goes terribly wrong. The bucket won't stop dumping water on the floor, and the castle is in danger of being destroyed. The Sorcerer returns at just the right moment, and all is saved. Although Tiernan fears the worst, the Sorcerer respects his courage and creativity, acknowledging that the young apprentice's gifts could cause him trouble but also, if used well, might serve to make him great. Nicholas Mondelli provides a soothing and melodic narration. VERDICT This simplified and abbreviated version of the classic story is ideal for a very young audience.—Terri Perper, Olney Elementary School, MD
