Wilfred is a young magical apprentice determined to become the best and most wise wizard that ever was. Unfortunately, he's not very good. He's got the raw talent, but he doesn't concentrate! In fact, he's become (rather unkindly) known as "Wilfred the UNwise." And when one of Wilf's spells goes badly wrong, he's suddenly catapulted into the future—and more specifically, into Bel's hometown. Bel is an aspiring magician, too—she wants to be an amazing street magician like her heroes on TV. She's even got a stage-name, and unlike Wilf, she practices all the time—maybe just a little too much. Delighted by her skills, Wilf begs to learn from Bel. She's not so sure, but agrees that they'll have to work together to try to work out how to get Wilf back to his own time. Can these two young magicians work together, or will Wilf be stuck here forever?
