The Heart of the Story

  • Bravery is shown when things don't go right.
  • Leo was a leader. That's why Oz gave the wand to Leo. Leo will become the next Elder of the Wand ( more detail will be reveleaded in the 2nd book.)
  • Real magic is found within ourselves. In Leo's case, in his ability to run and the lessons he learned from his parents.
  • Listening to parents will add years to our lives.
  • We have to sacrifice a piece of ourselves sometimes to see what we are made of.

Be part of the adventure!
