I remember reading this in second grade. As soon as i saw the title again, i remembered the whimsical story that inspired me again and again through-out my childhood. Half-Magic is one of the most original fantasy books i have ever read, with lots of authentic characters and ideas. I love this book, and i will always treasure it.

This book was ok but I think it was boring.

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 part, but the cat trying to talk would definitely be one of them. I'm so glad this book is still around. My boys, aged 9 and 11, really enjoyed it.

I loved this book because it was magical and exciting. There was a twist in almost every chapter!

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)
