Review: Are you a fantasy type of reader? Then you will enjoy the book The Song of the Quarkbeast by Jasper F Forde. This is a story about magicians that have to do all the work for their manager. The Song of the Quarkbeast is about magicians of Kazam Mystical Arts Management. They have to put up with their sixteen-year-old manager that gives them a collection of things to do. Then this magical power that only comes once in a while, and is meant for the king, the king knows exactly how and that he can control magic everywhere. The magician's manager is what stands between the king and his plans. Jennifer the boss would have trouble with this. The king never gives up. The Song of the Quarkbeast should read by kid's aged 11-13. There are big words, stronger vocabulary and a lot of things going on at once. Like some people are at the shop doing their work, and then the book switches to the other characters in the story that are working outside of the shop. The Song of the Quarkbeast is a good fantasy book. The events in the story can't really happen. The setting of this book is realistic. The characters are at places that there can be. This book is magical too some it has to do with magic. This book should be told to either a boy or a girl. There isn't anything that makes the book entirely for a boy or entirely for a girl.
