Synopses & Reviews
Lynne Jonell, the popular author of Emmy and the Incredible Shrinking Rat,
makes her Stepping Stones debut with a high-spirited tale of mixed-up magic and wishes gone wrong.
Celia Willow is the baby of the family, and she’s sick of it. She's sick of being younger and smaller. She's sick of never being taken seriously. So when Celia's hamster surprises the Willows with his wish-granting powers, she blurts out her deepest desire.
The problem? Celia didn't exactly wish to be furry.
Her big brothers and sister can't let their parents see her like this, but they only have one night to fix things. How can Abner, Tate, and Derek reverse something as powerful as hamster magic . . . before breakfast?
Hamster Magic is on the Texas Bluebonnet Masterlist for 2012-2013 and was a finalist for the Minnesota Book Award.
The author of "Emmy and the Incredible Shrinking Rat" returns with a high-spirited tale of mixed-up magic and wishes gone wrong. Illustrations.
