Primary school children will receive the very best start to their academic life with this revolutionary book packed full of practical and comprehensive ideas from memory expert Dr Sue Whiting. She draws upon her extensive knowledge in this field to teach nine to eleven year olds the most effective strategies for learning to use their memories. Along with Memo the Memory Monster, Bramble the Wizard's special cat, and Charlie and Holly the Labradors, the Wizard guides children through games, activities and tricks to help them use their memories much more effectively. The book is fun to use with easy to read text, cartoon illustrations, puzzles and quizzes (with rewards), which give children a sense of achievement. The book is set up in a step-by-step sequence so children can use it with minimal parental involvement. The book is the first in the Wizard of Spells series where all aspects of memory training will be included. Drawing on the latest research and her own experience in memory competitions and teaching children, Sue gives authoritative guidance you can trust.

Dr Sue Whiting, a Grandmaster of Memory, is a former Women's World Memory Champion and won the title for five consecutive years. A qualified Chartered Accountant and Chartered Tax Adviser (though no longer practising), Sue now works as a writer, speaker, coach and independent memory consultant, and has more than 20 years' experience in the field of memory. Sue became interested in how the memory works soon after her own children were born. A career break enabled her to develop her interest, become a Memory Grandmaster and the Women's World Memory Champion. In doing so, Sue realised that all the hard work she had done to pass her university and professional exams could have been much more effective. Sue spearheaded the first ever UK school's memory championships where she devised and wrote all the material and training packs for the 2007/2008 Junior Memory Challenge. Her work extended to conducting pre-competition trials as well as being an arbiter for the final, held at Imperial College, London in March 2008. Year 4 children from 60 primary schools participated and the feedback received showed the tremendous demand there was for teaching children how to use their memories effectively. Sue has spoken at primary schools, even teaching some of the teachers, and has also conducted the popular Wizard of Spells lectures held at the Science Museum in August 2012. Her ideas for the children's Wizard of Spells series of books were developed from these experiences. With Sue's scientific background (the Dr. refers to D.Phil in Astrophysics from Oxford University), she naturally keeps up to date with recent developments being made in neuroscience.
