Half Magic

Half Magic Cover

 

Staff Pick

I love this story. Four children (one brother and three sisters) find a magic coin. They don't initially understand the coin's special properties or how to use it without causing unwanted mayhem — since only half of a wish comes true when wished in the coin's presence. Follow the adventures that the children have once they figure out how to use their coin.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Beloved by children (and the parents lucky enough to share it with them) since it was first published in 1954, Half Magic is the uproarious tale of four siblings who discover a charm that grants exactly half of whatever they wish for--with results that are twice as predictable (and hilarious) as you might expect.

Jane, Mark, Katharine, and Martha manage to cope with an unexpected trip to the Sahara and nearly a disastrous trip to the time of King Arthur. But can these plucky and resourceful children deal with the changes magic is bringing to their tight-knit family?

Set in Ohio in the late 1920s, yet fresh and funny now as the day it was written. Half Magic weaves its spell anew in this full cast recording that will entrance newcomers as well as fans who have loved this wonderful book for decades.

About the Author

Edward Eager was a playwright and lyricist who turned his hand to children's books after reading the stories of the great British fantasist E. Nesbit. His seven books remain among the most popular children's fantasies ever written by an American.
