Of all the Edward Eager books, this is probably the one I know least well, the one I don t think I first sat down and read until I was an adult which means, unfortunately, that it missed out on that golden period where I devoured books as a child, reread them ad nauseam, and now carry them forever with me.Note The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the changes in Goodreads policy and enforcement You can read why I came to this decision here.In the meantime, you can read the entire review at Smorgasbook I know I read this as a child, but it must have been only once, because so much of it seemed fresh and new to me Tommy was enthusiastic, especially at first, because he has lately been really into spotting references in books and TV shows this largely brought about by his current fixation with The Simpsons So it was exciting to him, that the first magical adventure referenced the Oz books, the secondHalf Magicand the third the Little House books, all of which he s somewhat familiar with Then he got frustrated, because the chapters stopped being about books so much, and the children never visited the world ofThe Hobbit , which he d been desperately hoping for, despite one of the characters suggesting it as a possibility Later on, we were briefly excited whenThe 13 Clocksgot mentioned So, Tommy s frustrations aside, I still came away from the book with a certain satisfaction that I do seem to be producing a well read child even though he s not reading any of these on his own A potential reader of this book would certainly do well to be familiar with those books We actually tried to read Knight s Castle a few months back, but had to give up, because T was confused by and uninterested in all the Ivanhoe references something I didn t mind as a child despite not having readIvanhoeor seen the movie, as the kids do in that book.Two last observations 1 The Barnaby the wanderer chapter is much philosophical than anything else of Eager s that I ve read I found myself wondering if there s a lot of Eager himself in Barnaby full of ideas, aware he s intelligent than anyone else, kind at heart, but given to defensively using biting sarcasm to make up for his scrawniness and short stature 2 Eager s chapters are always really, really long We ended up staying up til 10 bedtime is supposedly at 9 to finish each chapter several times in our nights of reading this. The best kind of book, says Barnaby, is a magic book Oh, yes, I thought, nodding, of course I remember reading this book when I was a little ten year old girl I found Half Magic on the bottom shelf, dusty, almost unread, and felt like I d discovered a whole new world Imagine how sad I was to find that there were only two Edward Eager books in our library, which composed for me the entire extent of my book world The book was every bit as good to me as a forty seven year old as it was so many years ago I m Eager to read Eager magic.
