Well it's not quite Hogwarts, the Reality Series, but CBBC Newsround is set to air a new program where children will compete using magic. The Stage reports this new program, which is called "The Sorcerer's Apprentice," will be set at a boarding school in the English countryside and 14 "scholars" will be selected. These students will then:

"...be taken to the magic school to undergo 18 days of training by top professional magicians. The aspiring apprentices will be schooled in the history of magic and folklore, the Latin for casting spells, chemistry and card tricks, how to look after resident magic animals, and the art of illusion. At the end of each week, the children will compete, performing their magic in front of a live audience."

A rep for the UK channel said this program "will inspire and amaze in equal measures." No broadcast date has yet been announced.

Guess That Book

"Dad's crazy about everything to do with Muggles; our shed's full of Muggle stuff. He takes it apart, puts spells on it, and puts it back together again. If he raided [i]our[/i] house he'd have to put himself under arrest. It drives Mum mad."
