The Well-Wishersby Edward Eager
Synopses & Reviews
The wishing well is all used up, its magic drained, its enchantment gone dry.
and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160; Or has it?
and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160; In a reckless moment, Gordy threatens the old well, telling it to get going with its magic or else! and that seemes to do the trick. Suddenly Laura, Lydia, James, and Kipandmdash;who feared their autumn would unfold without magicandmdash;are plunged into just the sorst of outlandish adventures theyand#39;d longed for.
and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160; But is it really the welland#39;s magic that transforms troublemaker Dicky LeBaron from neand#39;er-do-well to hero? Or keeps Appledoreand#39;s orchardandmdash;and love lifeandmdash;in bloom? Or sends James on a doubly daring rescue of a damsel in distress?
and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160; What does it matter? Sometimes the best kind of magic is the kind that isnand#39;t so magical at all. . . .
“ This one will delight.” --Christian Science Monitor
