Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 seems to do the trick. Suddenly Laura, Lydia, James, and Kipandmdash;who feared their autumn would unfold without magicandmdash;are plunged into just the sort 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. . . .

Synopsis:

“ This one will delight.” --Christian Science Monitor

Synopsis:

A group of friends relate their experiences when the unpredictable old wishing well in the backyard continues to involve them in a variety of magical adventures. This handsome new edition comes with a contemporary look and new cover art. Illustrations.

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;
