George the Wizard has the best life on top of his magical mountain, but he's missing one key thing: friends! An uplifting story about friendship and letting others see your true colours from the ever-popular Tony Armstrong, with incredible artwork by debut illustrator Emma Sjaan Beukers.

George the Wizard loves life on top of his mountain. He looks after all the animals and loves to play hide and seek with them. He spends hours seeing how many flips he can do on his flying cloud without getting sick. Most of all, he loves using his magic to make hot bubble baths and cook up delicious feeds. If it ever rains, he just conjures a magical shield to stay dry. How cool is that?

The only thing missing from George's magical life is friends to share it all with. But will George have the courage to show others his true colours?

A relatable story about the good things that can come of being true to yourself and about discovering that being different is something to be celebrated, not feared.
