A long, long time ago there was a family who spent all their time doing magic. Wesley’s parents and grandparents were all wizards, and Wesley wanted to be a great wizard, too.
He already knew how to turn a frog into a snake with his magic wand. He could also stop time by saying the magic words: “Tempo stoppus, abracadabra!”
One day Wesley was on his way to school when he saw a couple of hooligans tormenting a little dog who had been trotting down the street.
Wesley uttered the magic words and stopped time in order to rescue the dog and take him out of reach of the horrible louts. But when he started time again, one of the hooligans caught sight of him scooping up the little dog in his arms and disappearing around the corner. He tried to catch him up, but Wesley had made himself invisible and vanished from sight.
Wesley had concentrated so hard that he had achieved the greatest of all magical powers: it was a very happy moment, for at last he had become a great wizard.
