The 49th Magician has been a favorite of mine since I got my first copy at age 4 in 1971, and remains a favorite for me today at age 40!

The story unfolds like I see life unfolding....when you are young (with but 1 magician) life's simplicity is a joy in itself. As we age, other tasks and demands on our time (eventually getting up to 49 magicians) take some of the joy out of everyday life--even though many of those tasks and time-demands we seek out INTENTIONALLY to "better" our lives. Then someone or something happens (the 49th magician takes the stage) and causes us to pause and us that moment to return to the creek and build a dam.

The illustrations are high quality and each page is a joy to look at.

If you are looking for a great story for yourself or a child...look no further! My childhood favorite is now my kids favorite!
