Young Readers Book Group with Jackie
Discussion of Seven-Day Magic
Led (virtually!) by bookseller Jackie, our Young Readers Book Group meets quarterly and is geared toward kids ages 9 to 12, reading and discussing great contemporary and classic chapter books. Parents are welcome (but not required) to attend. For February, the group discusses the seventh book in Edward Eager’s Tales of Magic series, Seven-Day Magic. All books are magic, but some are more magical than others. When Susan opens a strange library book, she discovers it is about her and her friends, leading up to the moment when she opened the book. Beyond that, the pages are blank… waiting for the children to wish the book full of adventures. Fredericka asks for wizards and beasties, and a dragon carries her off. Susan journeys to the world of Half Magic, and finds that mixing magic creates trouble—far too much to deal with before the book is due back at the library. Will their adventure end happily ever after?
