But can these plucky and resourceful children deal with the changes magic is bringing to their tight-knit family?Set in Ohio in the late 1920s, yet fresh and funny now as the day it was written. Half Magic weaves its spell anew in this full cast recording that will entrance newcomers as well as fans who have loved this wonderful book for decades.
