^GRATUIT EPUB ☜ The Magic Misfits ☠ PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free

I facilitated a book club for five 11 and 12 year old girls They all rated the book positively The book meanders through 21 chapters with cute titles such as Chapter SIXTEEN BILLION gotcha, a non existent chapter As the title suggests, magic features throughout the book, including lessons on how to perform magic tricks I found the book to be written in a clever way to introduce youth into many words having a similar meaning weasel, con artist, scam, nick something, racket, and shell game, to provide some examples I enjoyed the book since there are many opportunities to have meaningful discussions with a small group of avid readers There is a very strong message that good always outweighs evil. The quick way to describe this book is six kid magicians solving a mystery narrated by a goofy Lemony SnicketWe follow the story of a runaway away magician Carter, a young boy who wants to belong to a proper family When Carter ran away from his uncle s clutches he found himself in a little town called Mineral Wells and tangled in a mystery There he meets Leila, Theo, Ridley, Olly and Izzy Together they create a small team called the Magic Misfists and try to reveal B.B Bosso for the crook that he is Between the narrator and the diverse character cast, Harris created a modern Lemony Snicket No one character is the same and the narrator himself is a character of his own.Carter is benevolent young boy who mysteriously lost his parents and was forced to live with his crook uncle Sly Mike Just a young boy desperate to fit in and have a real family again.Leila is a fiery ethnic of unknown origin so far girl who lives with her two dads, a magician and a chef I see what you did there NPH She dreams of being an escape artist magician and learning magic with her friends.Theo is a black gentleman who always wears a suit and lives with a musician dad and an artist mom As a magician who specializes in levitation, he uses his violin that he keeps in his suit at all times to make things move.Ridley is intelligent girl who is bound to a wheelchair, but it doesn t stop her from making things appear in the blink of an eye She makes sure the misfits don t get into too much trouble.Olly and Izzy are a performing twin duo who know how to magically appear in random places to entertain the audience.With such diverse characters there is sure to be someone that any kid picking up the book can identify withwithout being magicians of course.Throughout the Magic Misfits, the reader is given quick magic tips that makes one feel like a magician too, and that maybe it is not that hard The narrator makes sure to explain some tricks in such a simple manner that even a dog could do it.I was really impressed with Harris way of story telling, while it can be argued that it is very similar to Lemony Snicket s style of story telling, Harris created a quirky go lucky narrator that wants the audience to laugh and cheer for the characters rather than feel pity for the character s life Even though Magic Misfists is a Middle Grade novel I believe it is still a novel YA readers will find themselves enjoying, especially if you are a Lemony Snicket fan.4.5 5 I love Neil Patrick Harris There is something very magnetic about this guy I don t always agree with him, but honestly who agrees with anyone all the time Lol I bought this book to pre read for my daughters.IT WAS AMAZING A wonderful read You could hear NPH read it along with you it drips with his articulation and rhythm It s laced with magical tidbits and tricks I m looking forward to reading to my LittleLadies and maybe getting copies for my siblings families I also loved that it pushing friendships not romantic relationships which is always a plus in my opinion Side note for diversity, one kid is in a wheel chair, one tuxedo clad boy, homeless kid, and a girl adopted by two dads The magical misfits is a truly wonderful and amazing bookI would read again and rate it 4 and 2 10 stars The above is a review by my extremely well read, book obsessed 11 year old I also read the book and we both enjoyed it My only wish is that it was a bit longer, but I understand that a longer book can be daunting for some newer readers It was an easy read with an interesting plot but what I enjoyed most was the inclusion of diversity I also enjoyed the characters, how they bound together based on the idea that they are misfits , and I believe I m not alone in finding that highly relatable Well done, Mr Harris Carter has special skills, but he has never believed in magic, only in tricks When he meets a group of friends just like him and is welcomed into the fold, he starts wondering if magic just might exist.I love that Carter s character is down to earth, with a little self doubt to teach a young reader about self confidence and has very strong beliefs about right and wrong Each misfit has his or her own special skill and quirky personality to keep young readers interested and entertained The book contains illustrations, puzzles, activities, magic trick tutorials and is packed with humorous misdirection Is it just me or does one of the Mr Vernons bear a striking resemblance to NPH I found it refreshing that there is no reference made to modern technology i.e cellphones, laptops, tablets, but the story does talk about and to modern society topics that are important for young readers to read about i.e adoption, having two moms or two dads instead a traditional household of a mom and dad and children with disabilities The story is funny and heart warming and made me remember how much fun it was to watch good guys beat bad guys cartoons on a Saturday morning.I recommend a paperback copy of the book instead of eBook or Audiobook, as the puzzles are quite tricky to solve on an electronic version The book is also listed as middle grade , but my recommendation is that it is suited to 7 to 9 year old young bookworms.Favorite Quote Carter wondered if he was beginning to believe in magic Not the kind where you can actually make things disappear or cast a spell, but the kind where you can t sleep because you re so full of joy that you stay awake and watch the sun come up. agr able lire, pour les enfants, mais aussi pour les parents astuces qui amusent petits et
