Magic For Sale

We rated this book:


Georgie is dared by his friends to go ghost hunting in Miss Pustula Night’s magic shop. Georgie hides in the shop, and when it is closed for the night, he comes out but falls in a trap door that takes him to a secret room. He sees the ghost, who is actually scared of Georgie. The ghost tells Georgie that Miss Night banished him to the room to count every single treasure. The ghost thinks he will never be able to finish. So Georgie decides to help the ghost with his chore. Will they ever get it done, or will they both be stuck in the secret room forever?

I really liked Magic for Sale. When I looked at the cover, I never would have guessed the story would have been what it was. I liked the story, and I don’t know how the author would have even thought of this neat idea. The illustrations were amazing. They had so much detail. The pages were so full of different things that I had to go back and take time to look at everything. When Georgie and the ghost were counting objects, I liked looking for the things they listed in the illustrations. The book was written as limerick poetry, which is something I had just learned about in school. I would recommend Magic for Sale to kids with a great imagination.
