Toby Forward Books Overview
The first fantasy novel of a quartet by the author of ‘Dead Young’, ‘Down the Road Worlds Away’, ‘Neverland’, ‘The Book of Lies’, ‘The Toad Lady’ and ‘Travelling Backwards’.
When Flaxfield the great wizard dies, his apprentice Sam is left without a master. Sam has great power but he doesn’t know it yet. All he knows is that he needs a new master if he wants to finish his education in magic. With his dragon Starback at his side, Sam sets out alone on his quest. But there are those who want Sam’s power for themselves, dangerous forces who are waiting for his first mistake so they can attack. When Sam is tricked into making a mortal error, only Starback can save him, thanks to a bond between them that is deeper than either of them know. With a strong sense of adventure and a lyrical writing style, Toby Forward has created a page turning, accessible fantasy with the literary quality of a classic.
Lizzie is upset. Her grandfather is very ill and she realizes that he will soon die. She begs her friend Mrs. May to give her something to make him better. Mrs. May gives her a potion with the warning that Grandfather must not drink too much. The effect is startling. Grandfather becomes much younger and more vigorous with each sip. Of course, he pays no heed to Mrs. May’s warning until the process of getting younger becomes a little too extreme! He and Lizzie are faced with the dilemma: is this really how life should end?

The Wolf’s Story
Little readers will love second guessing this funny, fractured fairy tale that replays the story of Little Red Riding Hood from the poor maligned wolf’s point of view. No, please. Look at me. Would I LIE to you? It was the old woman who started it. Everyone knows there are at least two sides to every story, and if you believe in the big eared, sharp toothed villain of LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD, there’s a logical explanation for everything. As our antihero tells it, it all starts with the helpful wolf doing odd jobs for Grandma are you sure you don’t want to sit a little closer?. How was he to know that he spoiled Little Red would come along and ruin a good working relationship? Zooming in dramatically from strategic angles, the amusing illustrations offer visual clues that this is a story to be taken with a grain of salt and a lot of giggling.
