More informationBeloved by young readers (and the parents lucky enough to share it with them) since it was first published in 1954, Half Magic is the uproarious tale of four children who discover a charm that grants exactly half of whatever they wish for-with results that are twice as unpredictable (and hilarious) as you might expect.
Jane, Mark, Katharine, and Martha manage to cope with an unexpected trip to the Sahara and a nearly disastrous trip to the time of King Arthur. But can even these plucky and resourceful children deal with the changes magic is bringing to their tight-knit family?
Set in Ohio in the late 1920's, 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.
