Special Book Talk Tuesday: My FAVORITE Children's Book!

Hello everyone! Thank you so much for visiting me again.
This is a special Book Talk Tuesday Post for me.
It's about my FAVORITE children's book of ALL TIME!
I know, you are thinking "How in the world do you choose?  There are so many great books out there?"  But, this one is special.

Special Book Talk Tuesday: My Favorite Children's Book!

Mrs. Beggs and the Wizard by Mercer Mayer has been my favorite since I was a little girl.
When I was in college, I discovered it again at a Half-Price Book store.  It was the first children's book that I bought for my future classroom.
Every time I find it, I buy another copy.
It has everything a great book needs: compelling characters, action, adventure, and MAGIC!
Mrs. Beggs owns a boarding house and one day Mr. Z.P. Alabasium: Wizard Extraordinaire shows up looking for a room.  Once safely ensconced (that is such a great word isn't it?  ensconced?) strange thing start to happen!  Of course, the guests start to complain...
I love everything about this book!  I love the great word choice:
boarding house, constable, extraordinaire, tweaked.
I love the amazing illustrations!

I also love the humor:  "Aunt Cecelia flew away on a vacuum cleaner; not having a broom on hand..."

Most of all, I LOVE reading this book aloud to my students.  I read it every year on the first and last days of school.
It ends with another mysterious stranger showing up at the door:
