One minor matter: At one point the children are on an island and encounter "natives." The natives are depicted as violent -- cannibals, no less! -- and speak in a comic pseudo-language. There isn't an ounce of ill-will in any of it, but I very much doubt this episode would get by the politically correct police these days. In fact, similar stuff has kept most of the Doctor Doolittle books -- great favorites of mine as a kid -- out of print for many years.
All-in-all, I think this book would appeal the most to very young readers -- say, 7-9 years old -- although I enjoyed Eager's witty dialog and clever plotting and I am nearing the opposite end of the age spectrum.

I enjoyed Magic by the Lake much more than I did the previous book in this series.Read more
