‘What’s your job?’ Yukio asks.

‘I’m a sorcerer,’ the old man smiles, ‘and I need a young apprentice.’

One day, Yukio – a young boy from old Japan – leaves his sister in the country and looks for a job in the town. He finds interesting work there, as a sorcerer’s apprentice. But why must Yukio wait to learn magic? And what happens after he puts a spell on a broom when the sorcerer is away?
