Description
It all begins with a strange coin on a sun-warmed sidewalk, in this 1954 gem from playwright and lyricist Edward Eager. Jane finds the coin, and because she and her siblings are having the most dreadfully boring summer ever, she idly wishes something exciting would happen. And something does; her wish is granted. Or not quite—only half of her wish comes true. Holding a coin that grants only half-wishes, Jane and her brother and sisters take turns making double wishes, with hilariously unpredictable results. With its original ink drawings by N.M. Bodecker, this book for readers 8 and up features new cover art by Kate Greenaway Medalist Quentin Blake.

"Half Magic is a funny, charming, timeless book, as much a pleasure to read to a child now as it was 40 years ago. Those who had it read to them then may even have an obligation to pass on the pleasure."—NYTBR
