‘In the faraway village of Snottington Sneeze
Lived a wizened old wizard with knocketty knees.’

Woozy the Wizard is a well-meaning wizard who just wants to help his friends. But sometimes his spells (and he) get all mixed up! So then he has to get back on his broom with his pet pig and zoom around the village trying to put things right . . .

We love you, dear wizard, because you are kind.’
