Ms Wiz – Millionaire by Terence Blacker
Published by Macmillan, 2001
ISBN 0-330-39731-1
Illustrations © Tony Ross, 2001


Terence Blacker’s best-selling Ms Wiz stories provide the continuity of characters and storyline that appeals to young children. In this, the fifteenth, book in the series, Ms Wiz finds out she is wrong to assume that money is the most important thing in the world.

Just as the teachers complain about their local policeman and his efforts to catch a thief at St. Barnabas School, Ms Wiz arrives on the scene in her new role as private paranormal detective.

When both she and ‘Dodgy Dave’ Lightly become multi-millionaires from predicting the winning Lottery numbers, she realises that without magic, all that money is worthless.
