Half Magic (paperback)
Since Half Magic first hit bookshelves in 1954, Edward Eager's tales of magic have become beloved classics. Faced with a dull summer in the city, vacationing cousins Jane, Mark, Katharine, and Martha suddenly find themselves involved in a series of magical doings and extraordinary, whimsical adventures when they discover an ordinary-looking coin that seems to grant wishes. Illustrations. For ages 7-10.
