Magic In The City

Written by Heather Dyer

Illustrated by Serena Malyon

Magic In The City Synopsis

Brothers Jake and Simon Grubb aren't thrilled when they have to leave their home in Canada to move in with their cousin Hannah and her family in England. But things get interesting when they encounter a magician at a highway rest stop, who presents them with three gifts: a carpet, a camera and a stopwatch. Unfortunately, the magician doesn't provide them with any instructions, so the boys and Hannah learn as they go along. Flying over London, traveling through time, meeting the queen; they can't think of anything that could top this, until something does!
