Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since Half Magic first hit bookshelves in 1954, Edward Eagers tales of magic have become beloved classics. Now four cherished stories by Edward Eager about vacationing cousins who stumble into magical doings and whimsical adventures are available in updated hardcover and paperback formats. The original lively illustrations by N. M. Bodecker have been retained, but eye-catching new cover art by Kate Greenaway Medalist Quentin Blake gives these classics a fresh, contemporary look for a whole new generation.

Synopsis:

Half Magic is half-a-century old--and as much antic fun as ever!

About the Author

EDWARD EAGER (1911-1964) worked primarily as a playwright and lyricist. It wasn't until 1951, while searching for books to read to his young son, that he began writing children's stories.

JACK GANTOS is a National Book Award finalist, the recipient of a Newbery Honor and a Printz Honor, and the bestselling author of Joey Pigza Swallowed the Key, Joey Pigza Loses Control, the Rotten Ralph series, and Hole in My Life, as well as a dozen other widely acclaimed books of fiction for young readers. He lives in Boston, Massachusetts.
