Publisher Comments:

When wishing for magic, itand#39;s hard not to wish for too much.

and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160; If Jane, Mark, Katharine, and Martha had stopped to thinkandmdash;oh, if they had only stopped to think!andmdash;they would have ordered magic by the pound, or by the day, or even by the halves as they had in Half Magic.

and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160; But no, they asked for magic by the lakeandmdash;and now they have to deal with a whole lakeful of enchantment!

and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160; Soon the children are awash in magic. They find themselves cavorting with mermaids, outwitting pirates, andandmdash;with the help of a cranky old turtleandmdash;granting a little magical help to the one person who needs it most.

Synopsis:

Further adventures of Mark, Katherine, Jane, and Martha, who find their source of magic in a lake near which they are spending the summer.

Synopsis:

Since Half Magic first hit bookshelves in 1954, Edward Eagerandrsquo;s Tales of Magic have become beloved classics. Now all seven cherished stories by Edward Eager about vacationing cousins who stumble into magical doings and whimsical adventures are available in updated paperback editions. The original lively illustrations by N. M. Bodecker have been retained, but eye-catching new cover art gives these classics a fresh, contemporary look for a whole new generation.

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;
