Can one twelve-year-old girl fight a witch? Exiled from her village for accidentally using advanced magic, Suli must either become... a wise woman or be shunned as a witch. Apprenticed to the wise woman Tala, Suli’s magical education is cut short when a witch kidnaps her teacher to learn the secret of shape-shifting. Suli discovers she too has inherited the shape-shifting ability; she learns to fly and to talk to animals. Then the witch makes a terrible demand: Suli must live with the witch as her apprentice. If she doesn't, she’ll never see Tala again. But if she does, she’ll be called a witch for the rest of her life. “The two things I dreamed of doing as a child were to fly and to talk to animals. This marvelous children’s book brought this reader back to that happiest of times when everything was possible and wishes could come true.” — Ginny Rorby, winner of the American Library Association’s Schneider Family Book Award for her novel, Hurt Go Happy, a novel about a chimpanzee who uses sign-language. "Forest has created fascinating world-building here. The system of magic in The Third Kind of Magic－Seeing, Healing, Voice－are unique to me, particularly the history of the Sigur folk and their shapeshifting ability... These concepts are imaginative and intricate, making the story much more intriguing with its fast-paced plot. The characters’ struggles and flaws reflect on an important message; people fear what they don't understand and they judge the things they fear. Young Suli detests witches, but wants to become as powerful as them to protect her family. As a mentor, Tala is doing her best to teach Suli about the difference between magic and witchcraft to change her judgment and learn the old ways of their family. I gravitated to the well-defined and memorable Tala instantly and I liked the twist in the plot regarding the witch. Overall, this magical, coming-of-age fantasy tale is a solid read and explore its themes and concepts deftly to keep young readers interested. - Reader's Favorite Review A story for those who love to see strong girls learning to find their place in the world, while helping others, with enough action and suspense to keep the reader guessing. read more

Since Half Magic first hit bookshelves in 1954, Edward Eager’s Tales of Magic have become beloved classics. Now all seven cherishe...d stories by Edward Eager about vacationing cousins who stumble into magical doings and whimsical adventures are available in updated paperback editions. The original lively illustrations by N. M. Bodecker have been retained, but eye-catching new cover art gives these classics a fresh, contemporary look for a whole new generation. When wishing for magic, it's hard not to wish for too much. If Jane, Mark, Katharine, and Martha had stopped to think—oh, if they had only stopped to think!—they would have ordered magic by the pound, or by the day, or even by the halves as they had in Half Magic. But no, they asked for magic by the lake—and now they have to deal with a whole lakeful of enchantment! Soon the children are awash in magic. They find themselves cavorting with mermaids, outwitting pirates, and—with the help of a cranky old turtle—granting a little magical help to the one person who needs it most. read more

There were men and women and children in every sort of dress. Italian, Spanish, Russian; French peasants in blue blouses and woode...n shoes, workmen in the dress English working people wore a hundred years ago. Norwegians, Swedes, Swiss, Turks, Greeks, Indians, Arabians, Chinese, Japanese, besides Red Indians in dresses of skins, and Scots in kilts and sporrans. Philip did not know what nation most of the dresses belonged to—to him it was a brilliant patchwork of gold and gay colours. It reminded him of the fancy-dress party he had once been to with Helen, when he wore a Pierrot's dress and felt very silly in it. He noticed that not a single boy in all that crowd was dressed as he was—in what he thought was the only correct dress for boys. Lucy walked beside him. Once, just after they started, she said, 'Aren't you frightened, Philip?' and he would not answer, though he longed to say, 'Of course not. It's only girls who are afraid.' But he thought it would be more disagreeable to say nothing, so he said it. When they got to the Hall of Justice, she caught hold of his hand, and said: 'Oh!' very loud and sudden, 'doesn't it remind you of anything?' she asked. Philip pulled his hand away and said 'No' before he remembered that he had decided not to speak to her. And the 'No' was quite untrue, for the building did remind him of something, though he couldn't have told you what. The prisoners and their guard passed through a great arch between magnificent silver pillars, and along a vast corridor, lined with soldiers who all saluted. 'Do all sorts of soldiers salute you?' he asked the captain, 'or only just your own ones?' 'It's you they're saluting,' the captain said; 'our laws tell us to salute all prisoners out of respect for their misfortunes.' The judge sat on a high bronze throne with colossal bronze dragons on each side of it, and wide shallow steps of ivory, black and white. Two attendants spread a round mat on the top of the steps in front of the judge—a yellow mat it was, and very thick, and he stood up and saluted the prisoners. ('Because of your misfortunes,' the captain whispered.) The judge wore a bright yellow robe with a green girdle, and he had no wig, but a very odd-shaped hat, which he kept on all the time. The trial did not last long, and the captain said very little, and the judge still less, while the prisoners were not allowed to speak at all. The judge looked up something in a book, and consulted in a low voice with the crown lawyer and a sour-faced person in black. Then he put on his spectacles and said: 'Prisoners at the bar, you are found guilty of trespass. The punishment is Death—if the judge does not like the prisoners. If he does not dislike them it is imprisonment for life, or until the judge has had time to think it over. Remove the prisoners.' 'Oh, don't!' cried Philip, almost weeping. 'I thought you weren't afraid,' whispered Lucy. 'Silence in court,' said the judge. Then Philip and Lucy were removed. They were marched by streets quite different from those they had come by, and at last in the corner of a square they came to a large house that was quite black. 'Here we are,' said the captain kindly. 'Good-bye. Better luck next time.' The gaoler, a gentleman in black velvet, with a ruff and a pointed beard, came out and welcomed them cordially. read more
