Half Magic by Edward Eager (Paperback)
Since Half Magic first hit bookshelves in 1954, Edward Eager’s 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.

"I can't begin to imagine how many times I read this book as a kid. It was my very favorite and it's still on my shelf along with all of the Edward Eager's other books. I go back to it now, even as an adult, just for the sheer fun of it. The children seemed so much like kids I could have really had fun with. They were skeptical and yet willing to believe. They understood how magic should work, just as all kids understand how magic should work if we could ever just get ahold of some. The situations felt like situations my siblings and I would have gotten into and the sibling relationships felt real. It just felt so real and fun!
I don't have enough good words for this book. Can't wait to get my granddaughters started on Half Magic!"
"Absolutely phenomenal. This book, though rather aged, flows smoothly with neat, amusing chapters and an adorable, understanding ending. My favorite character? I'd say either Mark or Kate. 6/5 stars."
