A charming new look for Edward Eager?s classic Tales of Magic series "Lots of fun."&nbsp - New York Times Book Review
Laura is a girl who goes out of her way to find adventure. So when her family moves to a house with a well in the yard-a wishing well, according to Lydia, Laura's opinionated new neighbor-Laura is all too willing to make a wish and see what happens.
&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp Plenty happens.
&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp Thanks to the well, Laura and her new friends help save Miss Isabella's house from foreclosure, rescue the almost long-lost heir to a fortune, and even solve the mystery of the antique desk.
&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp But is the well truly granting wishes? Or is something else responsible for the adventures of that summer?
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.

Lots of fun." - The New York Times Book Review

"This latest book by the inventive and highly literate Mr. Eager is by all odds his best. The characters . . . are so alive they seem to step right out of the pages." -Chicago Tribune "
