Oliver is all alone, but he is determined to find a place where he feels useful and won’t be lonely anymore. After being a goatherd for a cruel farmer, Oliver decides it is time to run away. He packs a small bag and sets off looking forward to new adventures. Weary after traveling for a while, Oliver comes to a house where a man lets him in and feeds him. Oliver then finds out the man is a Sorcerer who then tells him he could use an apprentice to help him. Oliver is eager to become the sorcerer’s apprentice, and he does everything as Alfred the great sorcerer tells him to. It is a lot of work being an apprentice. Oliver works hard to be a good apprentice. One day Oliver asks Alfred if he would teach him some magic. Alfred reluctantly agrees, but tells him he must never use the magic without him there. One day when Alfred leaves, Oliver decides to use the spells he was taught to bring brooms to life so that they would help him complete chores around the house, but then he realizes he was never taught a spell to make them stop. Oliver knows Alfred will be disappointed. How will he ever earn Alfred’s trust back? This fun book tells the story of a mischievous boy. The illustrations are beautifully sketched, and they show exactly how I would picture a sorcerer’s home. I love the hidden animals in the book. The Sorcerer’s Apprentice has a great lesson in it for all readers.
