Half Magic
Half Magic | Edward Eager
12 posts | 26 read | 11 to read
It all begins with a strange coin on a sun-warmed sidewalk. Jane finds the coin, and becasue she and her sblings are having the worst, 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. It turns out the coin grants wishesbut only by half, so that you must wish for twice as much as you want. Wishing for two times some things is a cinch, but other doubled wishes only cause twice as much trouble. What is half of twice a talking cat? Or to be half-again twice not-here? And how do you double your most heartfelt wish, the one you care about so much it has to be perfect? Includes an introduction by Alice Hoffman

“Still, even without the country or a lake, the summer was a fine thing, particularly when you were at the beginning of it, looking ahead into it. There would be months of beautifully long, empty days, and each other to play with, and the books from the library.” This quote could be easily relatable to everyone. Almost everyone looks forward to summer, especially in the beginning when there is plenty to look forward to.

I would never read this book to a class. There is a moment when they end up in the desert when they come across a “very evil arab man”. The way they describe this person is very inappropriate for a classroom. Children can read this book on their own with their parents approval, but it has no place in the classroom.

This book was very interesting and creative. Four children wish on a half magic coin and get themselves into all sorts of trouble. I found the idea of having to double your wishes very fascinating to think about. Ever since I‘ve finished this book, I‘ve been pondering on how I would double on my wishes. A very interesting read.

All of Edward Eager's books are terrific. I highly recommend them, residual as read-alouds.

I loved these when I was little. One is about a magic library book and the other is about a coin that only grants half of what you wish for. Magical hijinks ensue. #somethingmagical #riotgrams

Had an all around bad day, so of course I'm unwinding with my foster #catsofLitsy and a children's book. Nothing quite beats revising the magic of childhood with a cuddly cat.

mcipher Hope that helps for a much better night. Sounds very comforting! 3y

#childprotagonists My father used to read to me and my sisters every night until we fell asleep. I grew up on these stories and ones like them. They will always be my favorite memories of my childhood. #latesy #photoadaynov16 @RealLifeReading

Another book in the great reread of my childhood. Ordinary siblings discovering magic with rules. What could possibly go wrong? 😆
