Fun adventure in the style of Edith Nesbit. I really enjoyed it, and look forward to reading the next in the series.

This is a great read aloud book. Well written and funny. Lots of magic without the overwhelming darkness of some newer books. My seven year old is loving them.

"Half Magic" is an amusing and heartwarming story about four siblings who find a magic coin that seems to grant the children only half of what they ask for. A perfect book for kids who love magic and make believe.

A quirky, magical tale of many awesome but odd events that keep you wanting more. I am 14 and I still enjoy it!

I loved this book when I was a child and I am thrilled that my children still loved this book today. It is just as funny, just as magical and the characters are just as amusing as when it was first written. It's hard to pick a favourite…

It's really good. My favorite part was when they wished their mother was a bare-backed horse rider at the circus. (from Caroline, age 8)
