Out of the millions of Harry Potter fans worldwide, there are tens of thousands who want to really do the magical things J. K. Rowling writes about. But would-be wizards must rely on information passed down from wizard elders. Is there a Hogwarts anywhere in the real world? Is there a real Albus Dumbledore? Where is the book these aspiring wizards need? Luckily for all these fans, male and female, Oberon Zell-Ravenheart, today's foremost genuine wizard, has written this essential handbook. What's more, he has gathered some of the greatest names in Wicca - including Ellen Evert Hopman, Raymond Buckland, Raven Grimassi, Patricia Telesco, Morning Glory Zell-Ravenheart and many more - into a modern-day Grey Council to publish for the first time everything an aspiring wizard needs to kw. Lurking within the pages of Grimoire for the Apprentice Wizard are: biographies of famous wizards of history and legend; detailed descriptions of magical tools and regalia (with full instructions for making them); rites and rituals for special occasions; a bestiary of mythical creatures; the laws of magic; myths and stories of gods and heroes; lore and legends of the stars and constellations; and instructions for performing amazing illusions, special effects and many other wonders of the magical multiverse.
