Publisher Comments:

When wishing for magic, itand#39;s hard not to wish for too much.

and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160; If Jane, Mark, Katharine, and Martha had stopped to thinkandmdash;oh, if they had only stopped to think!andmdash;they would have ordered magic by the pound, or by the day, or even by the halves as they had in Half Magic.

and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160; But no, they asked for magic by the lakeandmdash;and now they have to deal with a whole lakeful of enchantment!

and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160; Soon the children are awash in magic. They find themselves cavorting with mermaids, outwitting pirates, andandmdash;with the help of a cranky old turtleandmdash;granting a little magical help to the one person who needs it most.

Synopsis:

Further adventures of Mark, Katherine, Jane, and Martha, who find their source of magic in a lake near which they are spending the summer.

About the Author

Edward Eager (1911andndash;1964) worked primarily as a playwright and lyricist. It wasnand#39;t until 1951, while searching for books to read to his young son, Fritz, that he began writing childrenand#39;s stories. His classic Tales of Magic series started with the best-selling Half Magic, published in 1954. In each of his books he carefully acknowledges his indebtedness to E. Nesbit, whom he considered the best childrenand#39;s writer of all timeandmdash;andquot;so that any child who likes my books and doesnand#39;t know hers may be led back to the master of us all.andquot;
