When poor orphan boy Oliver becomes a sorcerer's apprentice, he enters an incredible new world. He learns wonderful magic spells, the secrets of nature, and how to make healing potions and oils from his kindly new master. 

But one day the sorcerer goes on a journey. Bored with his endless chores, Oliver enchants some brooms to do the work for him. But when the spell gets out of control, how can Oliver stop the magic? 

This classic tale about the importance of hard work was the inspiration for Disney's Fantasia. This beautifully illustrated edition is the creation of renowned artist Gerda Muller, creator of USBBY-honored A Year in Our New Garden.
