Good for pre-teen level

by cafe on Sep 6, 2007

My 8 yr. old found this too hard to read herself but it would be super for pre-teens. Very engaging story.


Read-aloud joy for the whole family

Like all of Edward Eager's work, this is a clever and hilarious book with an original plot and likable characters.

This is the best among Edward Eager's books about magic (every one of which, by the way, is worth reading). A family of children acquire a talisman that will grant their wishes, but only half of what they desire, unless they always remember to wish for twice as much of what they want. I first read this gem as a child, and in rereading it as an adult I found it just as funny.
