Ok, magic fans, who out there is confident enough in their wizardry knowledge to take a trivia quiz on my favorite kids’ television show, Wizards of Waverly Place?
Airing on Disney Channel, Wizards of Waverly Place follows the Russo family as they live seemingly normal lives in Manhattan. . . except for the fact that all three Russo children have magical powers inherited from their dad! There’s the oldest brother Justin (David Henrie), who takes his wizardry skills very seriously; middle sister Alex (Selena Gomez), who doesn’t take anything seriously; and youngest brother Max (Jake T. Austin), who is seriously bad at magic. And then there’s Alex’s best friend Harper (Jennifer Stone), their parents, Jerry and Theresa, and all the characters who hang out in their sub shop and their school.
And PS, the stars of the show are all big fans of reading. Check out these videos of David Henrie, Selena Gomez, and Jennifer Stone talking about why they love books.
