My Book Review
This book is funny because Olly and Issy play pranks on Bosso the thief. This story makes me want to read more and more and more. Carter is odd and I can relate. He knows magic tricks, and the book teaches you magic tricks too. I give this book 5 stars!

It was funny, like real funny! - Colten, age 10

It was funny and very similar to the Series of Unfortunate Events. I also thought it was mean how his parents left. - Lizzy, age 12 and Rebekah, age 11

I love this book. If you like magic, mystery, and suspense this is the book for you. I wish I could give spoilers but you MUST read it for yourself, it was really good. I give this book 5 stars, and will read the sequel. 😊

Leila has 2 fathers. This was lightly touched on in this first book and was made much more clear throughout the second book. It would have been nice to know this before my child started reading it. I believe the topic is something that a family should discuss on their own time, rather than be forced into it.

The storyline and the adventure are fun and engaging. It is well written and leaves you wanting more.

I chose a children's book as my first book of 2019.

I like to be aware of the books my grandchildren are reading and I also needed a break from anything too political, controversial, or angst-creating. The Magic Misfits was perfect for what I needed.

The book was a fast read that included some difficult circumstances which resolved by the end of the story. There is compassion for the underprivileged, disabled, and outsiders. Within the story and in explanatory and inserted segments of the book there are magic tricks, explanations of how magicians accomplish some of their illusions, and some insights into carnival games.

This book is part of a series.
