Silas and Sarah Heap love their six sons and look forward to the birth of their seventh child. Although
Silas is just an Ordinary Wizard, this child, aptly named Septimus, is the seventh son of a seventh son
and wondrous things are expected. But the midwife announces the child is dead and dashes off with the
body. On the very same day, Silas finds an abandoned baby girl and decides to raise her as his
own. So begins an extraordinary tale for kids ages nine and up. Bursting with imagination and, of
course, magic, the narrator skillfully guides listeners through an exciting story than is immensely
satisfying and will have its audience expectantly waiting for the next book in this three-part series.
