Magic Below Stairs by Caroline Stevermer

Stevermer, Caroline Magic Below Stairs, 199 p. Dial (Penguin), 2010.  $16.99.  Content: G.  Frederick Lincoln lives in an awful orphanage – the director seems bent on making his life miserable.  But help comes one night from one of the little folk – Billy Bly, who seems to bring luck to Frederick.  When Frederick catches the job as a servant for a great wizard, Billy follows.  And despite the wizard’s reservation, Billy helps not only Frederick, but also the great man and his heir-to-be.  Very cute fantasy – fun to read aloud at bedtime.  EL – ADVISABLE.
