William Edwards and the Wizardly Glasses is a children’s fantasy by Jonathan Berg and S.Z. Berg. Kids tease and avoid William Edwards, who wears tattered clothes to school. His wealthy parents rejects him, and do not care if he eats foods containing mustard, knowing it causes allergies. The school nurse gives William a pair of magic glasses that lets him see unusual things, and a bus ticket that takes him to Winkleberry, a school for children with wizzies or special powers. He meets Bora and Zandall, who help him discover his wizzie. William’s special vision shows him a couple who are his real parents. They are the captives of Tan Tallery, a zylot monster. William intends to travel in a time machine to rescue them with the help of his friends, but Tan Tallery appears everywhere he goes. How does he know William’s every move?
