Beloved by children (and the parents lucky enough to share it with them) since it was first published in 1954, Half Magic is the uproarious tale of four siblings who discover a charm that grants exactly half of whatever they wish for—with results that are twice as predictable (and hilarious) as you might expect.

Jane, Mark, Katharine, and Martha manage to cope with an unexpected trip to the Sahara and nearly a disastrous trip to the time of King Arthur. But can these plucky and resourceful children deal with the changes magic is bringing to their tight-knit family?

Set in Ohio in the late 1920s, yet as fresh and funny now as the day it was written, Half Magic weaves its spell anew in this full cast recording that will entrance newcomers as well as fans who have loved this wonderful book for decades.

    " Despite the fact that this book was written over 60 years ago and takes place nearly 100 years ago, it's an enjoyable classic. Lots of adventure, female and male main characters (a must for my daughter, she needs to have at least 1 girl protagonist), easy reading. Definitely recommend. "

    " It's really a nostalgia thing for me. My mother handed it to me on a day when I was kicking around complaining about being bored. "

    " This was a great selection for our third-grade Mother/Daughter Book Club. Great, entertaining book exploring why you should be careful what you wish for and why you should find happiness in all the things you already have. Well written. Great characters. I highly recommend for elementary age reading boys or girls. Very unisex appeal. "
