Felicity, July 2, 2009 (view all comments by Felicity)
I loved Edward Eager books as a child, and they're still fun. Seven Day Magic is charming because it's about the magic of books and a bookish sort of magic. Eager certainly is, as Bellow said of writers, "a reader moved to emulation," and this one drips with his love of books. It's sweet, good fun.

This book contains both subtle, incidental magic like that in Magic or Not? and magic of the sort the character Fredericka likes in her reading: "magic adventure[s], with wizards and witches and magic things in it" that are "for certain" magic, "not just a coincidence". Since there are both Frederickas and gentler Susans among the readers of the world, it's a good mix. Well worth the trip to the library for any magic-loving child.
