Title: A Spell for Chameleon
Author: Piers Anthony
Review: Well I read this in college and then re-read it again and I have to say that it just gets funnier every time I read it - the puns hit me differently then they did when I first read the book. I enjoy this authors writing and the complete series - every book I have read makes me laugh out loud and I keep coming back -
This is an author that any age would enjoy - I am trying to get my teens to read this series if I can pull them away from the XBOX - this is a great series and I hope you get a chance to read it - Give it a try - I think you will enjoy it -
Synopsis: Xanth was the enchanted land where magic ruled--where every citizen had a special spell only he could cast. That is, except for Bink of North Village. He was sure he possessed no magic, and knew that if he didn't find some soon, he would be exiled. According to the Good Magician Humfrey, the charts said that Bink was as powerful as the King or even the Evil Magician Trent. Unfortunately, no one could determine its form. Meanwhile, Bink was in despair. If he didn't find his magic soon, he would be forced to leave....
