A charming new look for Edward Eager?s classic Tales of Magic series "Convincing and funny." - Booklist
When wishing for magic, it's hard not to wish for too much.
&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp 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.
&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp But no, they asked for magic by the lake-and now they have to deal with a whole lakeful of enchantment!
&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp Soon the children 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.
Edward Eager (1911-1964) worked primarily as a playwright and lyricist. It wasn't until 1951, while he was searching for books to read to his young son, Fritz, that he began writing children's stories. His classic Tales of Magic series started with the best-selling Half Magic, published in 1954.

Editorial Reviews

The combination of real children and fantasy is convincing and funny." - Booklist

"The same melange of realism and fantasy, witty talk and believable characterization that has come to be the hallmark of Mr. Eager's stories." -The New York Times Book Review
