Ebook/PDF [ The Magic Misfits (The Magic Misfits, 1)]
I facilitated a book club for five 11 and 12 year old irls They all rated the book positively The book meanders through 21 chapters with cute titles such as Chapter SIXTEEN BILLION Bandits Moon gotcha a non existent chapter As the title suggests magic features throughout the book including lessons on how to perform magic tricks I found the book to be written in a clever way to introduce youth into many words having a similar meaning weasel con artist scam nick something racket and shellame to provide some examples I enjoyed the book since there Are Many Opportunities To many opportunities to meaningful discussions with a small The Hare with Amber Eyes A Family's Century of Art and Loss group of avid readers There is a very strong message thatood always outweighs evil My 9 year
