Half Magic Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Half Magic

Four children - Jane, Mark, Katharine, and Martha - are looking forward to a dull summer until they discover a magical charm that has the ability to grant wishes. After a number of experiments and misadventures, they learn that the charm grants only half of every wish. During the course of the book, they learn about the magic - thwarting it and being thwarted by it - and about themselves, and discover exactly what they've always needed. This is the first of Eager's marvelous children's books.
