Mirror Magic (Star Friends)

We rated this book:


Mirror Magic is a simple book for six-to-seven-year olds. The storyline is based off of magical animals that fight bad magic. There is a magic mirror that has a bad magical creature imprisoned in it. The animals and their companions fight the bad spirit and banish it. The plot is too quick-paced and is almost an outline of a novel. There are too many similar books. The book does not have a complex plot and almost says “they did this, they did that.” The characters are too simplistic and have no personality. The artwork is the best part of this book. It is pretty and realistic with lots of detail. The imagery is so detailed it looks alive. If the author elaborated on the story and expanded the plot it could be easily a better book. The types of magic were creative, and the worlds are decent. The books Dr. Kitty Cat, The Owl Diaries, and Kitty’s Magic might be better for kids of this reading level. While the book has some good bits, it is too short and does not live up to its title.
