Kaytek the Wizard (Polish: Kajtuś Czarodziej) (alternatively Kaytek the Sorcerer or Kaytek the Magician, with some title renderings retaining the original name Kaytus instead of Kaytek) is a 1933 children's novel by Polish author, physician, and child pedagogue Janusz Korczak. The book is one of Korczak's most famous works, and contains his pedagogical message. As King Matt, from Korczak's other novel, King Matt the First, Kaytek must deal with his power, which is greater than those of an average person, and can cause suffering to others if misused. The major theme of this book is growing up, and how.

by Janusz Korczak & illustrated by Avi Katz & translated by Antonia Lloyd-Jones. Korczak is memorialized as the Jewish pediatrician, progressive child psychologist and author who accompanied the children in his Warsaw ghetto orphanage to their deaths in a concentration camp. The Polish government declared 2012 the year of Janusz Korczak, marking the 70th anniversary of his death, and now his 1933 children’s book has been translated into English for the first time. The story is riveting, complex and thought-provoking.

Kaytek, a mischievous schoolboy who wants to become a wizard, is surprised to discover that he is able to perform magic spells and change reality. He begins to lead a double life: a powerful wizard in the dress of an ordinary boy. It’s all great fun using magic to cause strange incidents in his school and neighborhood, but soon Kaytek’s increasing powers cause major chaos around the city of Warsaw. Disillusioned, he leaves the country and wanders the world in search of the meaning of his good intentions, his unique abilities, and their consequences. Revolving around the notion that power is not without responsibility, nor without repercussions, this story speaks to every child's dream of freeing themselves from the endless control of adults, and shaping the world to their own designs.

Reviews (6)
It is a story about a boy who, while aware of being a helpless child, find magical powers that change the balance of powers in his life. This boy, Kaytek, goes through changes and a great amount of learning about using his new power.
It is a child centrist book written by a pioneer in child education almost a hundred years ago.
I love the story , having read it as a child in Hebrew.
My only complain is about the translation which is not flowing enough for a modern child. Iwould make it a bed time story to be read by a grown up to a child.
It is a gem in children literature and I hope that it would find its way to a translator worthy of it.

My son was awed by this book from the start, and laughted harder than I have ever seen him laugh. Korczak seems to know what children will love in a way i haven't seen in other books. He is a genius.

Can't wait to read it to my daughter.

Like many young boys, Kaytek is both mischievous and kind, playful and serious, creative and destructive - unintentionally, that is. Author Janusz Korczak was familiar with troubled youths, those children who some educators might classify as “emotionally disturbed” or as having some form of ADHD; after all, it was Korczak who, in 1912, founded Dom Sierot, an orphanage for those Jewish children in his native Warsaw nobody else would take in. Even before he founded his famous orphanage, Henryk Goldszmit (Korczak’s name by birth) recorded his observations of the children of the working poor who played outside his apartment in “Dzieci ulicy” (Children of the Street). And, as a young boy, the ever-contemplative Henryk imagined what life would be like if he possessed magical powers. Indeed, this question never left him in his adult years, and it formed the basis of many a discussion with the youngsters in his care.

Kaytek is just such a boy – a child with a powerful imagination, a child like so many other children, sometimes impulsive and all too often unaware of the consequences his actions will bring. Korczak, with his characteristic love and caring, introduces us to Kaytek as a boy who likes to make bets, both as a thrill seeker and as someone naughty but clever enough to use the bets to earn easy money through trickery. (At this point it might be worthwhile to compare Kaytek with the hero of an earlier book, “Big Business Billy.”) Kaytek teaches himself to read; perhaps, like young Henryk himself, his curiosity is never satisfied; rather, it keeps expanding, which leads him to wonder what it would be like to have magical powers. Kaytek’s wish was also the result of his being teased in school for his lack of athletic prowess and general clumsiness. He quickly realizes that his thoughts can make things magically happen, which leads to a great deal of unintentional mischief. (As a side note, anyone who has read “King Matt” will recognize the invisibility cap from that beloved classic work.) However, Kaytek also uses his magic to give his teacher a rose, as he can see he upset her.

Unfortunately, though, Kaytek’s impulsivity leads him to cast spells that wreak havoc and utter chaos throughout Warsaw. He leaves the Polish capital, both to escape what he has done and to find a way of controlling the consequences of his magic. Herein lies one of this book’s many ironies: Kaytek wants to be a wizard because he feels he has little control in an adult world (such as being accused by parents and teachers for acts of which he is entirely innocent), but the magic seems to gain control over him. In other words, Kaytek is trying to learn about power and the responsibility that comes with possessing it. Kaytek is also a metaphor for children in general, in that they are all too often not taken seriously by adults – that too many adults act without considering the welfare of the child. These are classic themes of Janusz Korzak’s writings, both fictional and pedagogical. There is no – and cannot be – a happy ending, but there is always hope.

This book represents the first English translation of one of Korczak’s works since 1990; that it was published in 2012, celebrated as the Year of Janusz Korczak in Poland and elsewhere (in honor of the centenary of his founding of Dom Sierot and in recognition of the 70th year of his death at Treblinka). In life, the Old Doctor was a masterful storyteller; his books (like the oral tales by which he is remembered by former orphans) are entertaining and educational, serious but with gentle humor, a delight for those children lucky enough to read him them and adults willing to listen.

My nine year old son begs for us to read this every night.

The best way I can describe it as an elaborate child's day dream of the kind I would have had over many months when I was supposed to be paying attention to whatever the teacher was talking about. In the daydream you imagine that if you just tried hard enough, you could be magic; that you could bend others to your will and make magical things happen. Korscak then takes that daydream and bends it, imagining the unforeseen difficulties a child with such powers would actual encounter.

Highly recommended and enjoyed.

This is not a typical children's book. My son and I are taking our time with it to prolong the enjoyment. It is funny and sad but also very real. Janusz Korczak is one of those storytellers that teaches your child compassion while taking you back to your own childhood if you choose to read his story together. This is truly an exceptional story.
