May 17, 2017I'm an 11 year old and I loved this book. It has humor, witches, wizards, magic spells, giant ants, and a powerful cello case, what more could you ask? I think the story was also balanced well with sadness, joy, excitement, anger, and confusion that in the end turns into understanding. It was very interesting for me because I like books where the kids are the heroes/heroines, I find them inspiring because I am a kid. This book was wonderfully written and illustrated.
Mar 25, 2017I read this together with my 9-year-old -- What a wonderful book! It has it all: Witches, wizards, enchanted forests, magic spells and, of course, giant ants. It deals well with a theme of tragic loss in a way that doesn't sugar-coat, but is also not too overwhelming for younger readers. And the illustrations by Julian Wang are a delight! I hope to read more adventures. Maybe we'll learn what Mr. P does next, or maybe the kids will get another strange visitor to Portland?
Mar 17, 2017What a delight! A friend gave us this book, and we were initially charmed by the idea of a young son illustrating a book written by his mother being sold to benefit the International Rescue Committee. Then we started actually reading the book, and were absolutely thrilled! It's a story of two brave young siblings who spend their summer break unexpectedly battling danger while making a new friend and getting a crash course in magic; along the way there is humor, suspense, and very good writing. I loved the feisty 9 year old narrator, Ruby, and her bookish, sensible, naturalist brother, Henry. I could relate completely to the tired, worried mother. This duo uses courage, humor, and teamwork to save their city from a magical menace, and my kids and I alternately giggled and held our breath as we wondered what would happen on the next page. The illustrations by young Julian Wang of his mother's text are sweet and clever-- my kids were quite inspired by his creativity and that he was able... More > to draw pictures that were publishable and complement his mom's text so well! I don't usually write reviews, but this book really is special, and I'd like to encourage as many people as possible to secure a copy for their families! You won't be disappointed!< Less
Mar 10, 2017This is indeed an enchanting tale about what happens when a man with curly hair like cotton candy circling his head moves into the Turner residence. Events ensue around a fairy house, a bear claw, Jeffrey the lizard, 3 witches and an invisibility blanket.It is a tale that is warm-hearted, funny and wise. Kudos to young Julian who did the illustrations.
