Editorial Reviews


Neil Patrick Harris's tone aims at taking listeners into his confidence...Harris' breathless style suggests he's telling the story exclusively for each listener. His characters are distinctive: Carter's trust issues are portrayed clearly; the other young people sound believable; and the villain, B. B. Bosso, comes across as appropriately gruff and conniving...The many characters add to the story's excitement.

-- "AudioFile"

I read this book with excitement, delight, and the increasing suspicion that it was going to make me disappear.

-- "Lemony Snicket, New York Times bestselling author"

The approachable length and lively, funny writing will ensure this book, the first in a series, performs its own vanishing act from shelves.

-- "Booklist"

Adventure, suspense, and excitement await these young magic misfits as they learn to trust one another and become friends.-- "School Library Connection"

An earnest message about discovering the magic in the world and finding the family that suits you.

-- " Kirkus Reviews "

A rollicking ride of a magical tale that's wholesomely suspenseful, values friendship, and applauds courage.

-- "School Library Journal" --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

From School Library Journal

Gr 4–6—Carter was quite young when he lost his parents and was taken in by his uncle of sorts, Sly Mike. Sly Mike doesn't hold down a real job; he cons people out of their money and belongings through sleight of hand and trickery. Carter has never had friends, gone to school, or felt safe. The only upside to his unusual lifestyle is his mastery of magic tricks he's learned from Sly Mike—but he refuses to use them to hurt or rob others. When Sly Mike steals a precious diamond necklace from kind Ms. Zalewski, Carter decides that his uncle has gone too far. The boy steals the necklace back, returns it to the rightful owner, and runs away. Carter jumps on a railcar, ending up in a small New England town where he is captured by a carnival owner, B.B. Bosso, and pressured to join his sticky-fingered carnival sidekicks. Carter quickly understands that the glitter of their magic conceals their greed and trickery. He escapes and at last meets his true friends—Leila, Theo, Ridley, Olly, and Izzy. Each friend possesses skills in different areas of magic. The friends bond over a hatred of the evil carnies and after some missteps manage to outsmart B.B. Bosso. The themes of friendship, ethical choices, and bravery are woven seamlessly throughout. Readers will sympathize with Carter and cheer when he finally finds his place. The plot is fast-paced, and characters are multifaceted. Fun magic tricks are peppered throughout. VERDICT A rollicking ride of a magical tale that's wholesomely suspenseful, values friendship, and applauds courage. A fine addition to medium and large collections.—Julie Shatterly, W. A. Bess Elementary School, Gastonia, NC --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
