A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month | February 2017 Debut of the Month | Magician and comedian Nick Mohammed has written a cracking adventure which sparkles like the magic tricks it is packed with. Young Magicians Alex, Zack, Sophie and Jonny are all keen to join the Magic Circle. The quartet meet at their induction at the Magic Circle Headquarters and soon discover that all is not well in the world of the Magic Circle. Can they unravel the mystery that is causing the trouble? They certainly give it their very best shot in an ebullient, roller-coaster, action-packed story. ~ Julia Eccleshare
Julia Eccleshare's Picks of the Month for February 2017
Young Magicians and the Thieves' Almanac by Nick Mohammed
A Busy Day for Birds by Lucy Cousins
Mind the Gap by Phil Earle
The Bolds on Holiday by Julian Clary
The Unexpected Love Story of Alfred Fiddleduckling by Timothy Basil Ering
The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart by Stephanie Burgis
On a London street, four unlikely friends stand before the astonishingly ordinary-looking blue door of the Magic Circle ...
Alex doesn't say much, and once jumped when handed a satsuma, but, wow, is he amazing with a deck of cards. Zack is undoubtedly one of the best pickpockets in the country (but always puts things back). Sophie once convinced her Brown Owl that all the other Brownies were jellyfish thanks to her nifty hypnosis skills - and then never returned. Jonny - who is quite possibly the tallest boy in the universe - mixes science and magic with spectacular consequences (mostly explosions).
