The Magic Misfits: The Minor Third

We rated this book:


The Magic Misfits: The Minor Third is the third book in the series by Neil Patrick Harris. Theo and the other misfits are back for another summer adventure, and they are performing in a talent show. They make it all the way into the finale, and then they can’t decide who should perform. The misfits start to fight, but then the weird ventriloquist with a doll comes to Mineral Wells, and he looks exactly like the one from Carter’s old pictures of the evil Emerald Ring gang!

The kids also meet Emily, a new kid in town. She comes to help the group of friends one afternoon while they are all playing at the park and the locally bully tries to anger the group. But Ridley isn’t too sure about Emily. Is she really who she says she is?

Will the leader of the Emerald Ring, Callahan, who we met in the first book come back? Who is the weird ventriloquist, really?

I absolutely love this book series, and this third edition has been a wonderful read once again. The author has a wonderful way of mixing great storytelling, humor, and magic all into one amazing story. Even before you start reading the story, it makes you laugh out loud because of the chapter titles. I love that there are magic tricks to learn all throughout the book. All the characters are very well thought out and portrayed. Each character plays an important part in the group of friends, and with each book you get to know them a bit better. The illustrations were also lovely once again. I would recommend this book to any kids ages 8 and up who love a great adventure.
