Edition language: English. I was enchanted by this book when I was younger, the misogyny and pedophile vibes went right over my head remember that Bink is supposed to be 25, even if he acts 15 , but reading the book again makes me wonder what the hell is going on with this book?
What Was I Thinking?
It was impossible for me to divorce the attitu See review. This was a very enjoyable read. Imaginative, funny, and has somewhat of an adult tinge to it in some of the emotions it explores.

A Spell for Chameleon (The Parallel Edition... Simplified)
Living in a land where everyone has magic except him, our young hero sets out to find some or find out why not. Soon after starting his journey he meets the beautiful but extremely dumb heroine whose magic is a monthly cycle of inverse beauty and intelligence - at one extreme she is beautiful but dumb, two weeks later she is mentally brilliant and contemptuous of hero as well as ugly.
