Edward Eager (1911-1964) worked primarily as a playwright and lyricist. It wasn't until 1951, while 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.

These are wonderful books, all filled with the power of the imagination and the possibility that anything can happen at any time, to anyone. Eager's style is funny, wise, and entertaining." -Alice Hoffman, author of Aquamarine and Practical Magic "Few people understand the delicious lure of everyday magic like Edward Eager did. He understood so well the promise of the impossible and the delight of wishing-but he also understood that no kid wants magic to be too easy. Timelessly honest, dangerously funny. I'm thrilled that modern kids will find all the best there is in this collection." -Linda Urban, author of A Crooked Kind of Perfect "These are wonderful books, all filled with the power of the imagination and the possibility that anything can happen at any time, to anyone.
