Books in this series

by Jasper Fforde - Children's 10-12, Fantasy

In the good old days, magic was indispensable, but now magic is fading. Fifteen-year-old foundling Jennifer Strange runs Kazam, an employment agency for magicians --- but it’s hard to stay in business when magic is drying up. If the visions predicting the death of the world’s last dragon at the hands of an unnamed Dragonslayer, everything will change for Kazam --- and for Jennifer.

by Jasper Fforde - Children's 10-12

Magic has been in a sad state in the Ununited Kingdom for years, but now it’s finally on the rise, and boneheaded King Snodd IV knows it. If he succeeds at his plot, the very future of magic will be at risk! Sensible sixteen-year-old Jennifer Strange, acting manager of Kazam Mystical Arts Management and its unpredictable crew of sorcerers, has little chance against the king and his cronies—but there’s no way Kazam will let go of the noble powers of magic without a fight. A suspenseful, satirical story of Quarkbeasts, trolls, and wizidrical crackle!

by Jasper Fforde - Children's 10-12, Fantasy

Although she’s an orphan in indentured servitude, sixteen-year-old Jennifer Strange is pretty good at her job of managing the unpredictable crew at Kazam Mystical Arts Management. She already solved the Dragon Problem, avoided mass destruction by Quarkbeast, and helped save magic in the Ununited Kingdoms. Yet even Jennifer may be defeated when the long-absent Mighty Shandar makes an astonishing appearance and commands her to find the Eye of Zoltar --- proclaiming that if she fails, he will eliminate the only two dragons left on earth.
