An enchanting, clever, and whimsical fairy tale sure to charm fans of Adam Gidwitz and Shannon Hale.

In the storybook kingdom of Wanderly, everyone wants to be a Triumphant: the kingdom’s most glorious heroes. Everyone except Pippa North, who is quite happy with her perfectly common family.

No one in Wanderly wants to be a magician, would-be villains who are nothing more than nuisances. But Oliver Dash wants it more than anything in the world.

When Pippa is swept away to the Triumphant academy, and Oliver finds himself in danger of flunking out as a magician, a wayward wish puts them on opposite ends of a villainous scheme—and plunges Pippa into an adventure that will make the whole kingdom ask what it really means to be a hero.

Full of humor, magic, and heart, this Triumphant adventure is a stand-alone companion to The Tragical Tale of Birdie Bloom, which bestselling author Liesl Shurtliff called “the most charming book, footnotes and all!”
