Overview

Want to see something cool?
I can make that quarter "vanish."
All it takes is a little magic

Fourth grade was supposed to be a fresh start, but Mike's already back in the principal's office. He's not a bad kid. He just can't sit still. And now, his parents won't let him play soccer anymore; instead he has to hang out with his new neighbor Nora, who is good at "everything"

Then, Mike and Nora discover the White Rabbit. It's an odd shop with a special secret inside. Its owner, Mr. Zerlin, is a magician, and, amazingly, he believes Mike could be a magician, too. Has Mike finally found something he's good at?"

Fourth-grader Mike Weiss can’t get the hang of math, forgets his homework, and has trouble sitting still in school. And as if getting sent to the principal’s office the first week of school wasn’t bad enough, classmate Jackson (“Mike’s enemy since birth”) won’t lay off him, and he’s spending his after-school hours with Nora, the gifted new girl next door. One afternoon with Nora, Mike discovers the town magic shop, The White Rabbit, and something that he might actually be good at. The confidence boost helps Mike work harder in school and even take on Jackson. Written in clear, straightforward language, this engaging story effectively conveys Mike’s frustration at his difficulties at school and the joy he feels at discovering a talent for magic. Egan (Kate and Nate Are Running Late) is joined by co-author Lane, a professional magician, and step-by-step breakdowns of four tricks Mike masters are included. Mike is left wondering whether magic might be real, something likely to be explored in subsequent books, including The Incredible Twisting Arm, available simultaneously. Ages 7–9. Illustrator’s agent: Steven Malk, Writers House. (Apr.)
