Editorial Reviews

Review

Dan Frischman has penned a hilarious madcap adventure. Jackson and Jenks aren't the only master magicians here Frischman masterfully keeps readers on the edge of their seats, and leaves them smiling and wanting more---Wendy Mass, author of Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life and Heaven Looks a Lot Like a Mall.

When a pair of teens acquire accidental magic, mayhem, pratfalls and plot twists ensue. A laugh-filled joyride for your own adolescent, whether it's still living inside you or in the kitchen eating all the leftovers---Alan Gordon, author of Jester Leaps In and the Fools' Guild Mysteries.

"Dan Frischman has a gift for writing funny characters who are easy to relate to. Teen magicians Jamie and Darren experience the highest highs and the strangest lows but in the end, it's the true friends we make along the way who become our greatest treasures." --Kimberly Greene, author of "My Sister s a Pop Star."

A Kid's Review on May 23, 2009
Format: Hardcover
This is a very funny book! my mom and I read it together and she could not put it down. We both laughed out loud a lot, and the characters were very interesting and alive. My favorite character was Jamie Jenks a boy magician who is always doing something so crazy and funny. I gave my third grade teacher a copy of this book and she is now reading the book to my class. My friends are fighting over who gets to borrow the book. I said to go get one for themselves! This is a great book. Everybody should read it.

I loved this book for kids. It was interesting and didn't "talk down" to young ones. Being a teacher that's incredibly important to me. And what kid doesn't like magicians?!? All in all, a great read.

A long time ago...Dan Frischman was "The Great HouDanny" a teen magician in NJ... Among other successful ventures, he grew-up to be a hilarious comedian, a phenomenal comedic writer a fabulous actor and now a dynamic and impressive writer of books!

I am thrilled to report that my own children and my students (both male and female) agree that this is a well-written, fun to read book! What could be better than children looking forward to reading time? We are so excited about it that we're planning a book celebration in our classroom!

I am sure that Author Dan Frischman will enjoy continued successes and hope he also continues to write additional books...we want more...we want more! My children and my students hope to meet him at a local book signing! Ya never know where he might APPEAR! :)

My son and 5 of his friends read this book together and every one of them read it almost cover to cover in one sitting. I've never seen such excitement over a book. What makes all the more astonishing is that these kids normally prefer video games to reading. As a mom, I was thrilled that my son had so much fun reading and I'm hoping he'll seek out other books with as much delight. Mr. Frischman, pleeeeeeeeeease write a sequel!
