Beschreibung von Audible

Editors Select, November 2017

Neil Patrick Harris' first book is full of the usual Dickensian cliches so common in children's books - a poor orphan and crooked, greedy adult trying to exploit him - but Harris makes it his own by adding legit magic tricks and endearing personal asides to the audience. The story is light and fun, and fans of A Series of Unfortunate Events will love it. But the best part is Harris' narration. His charm and charisma come through in full force, making you feel like you are his best friend and he is telling the story just for you. —Sonja, Audible Editor

Inhaltsangabe

From beloved award-winning actor Neil Patrick Harris comes the magical first book in a new series with plenty of tricks up its sleeve.

When street magician Carter runs away, he never expects to find friends and magic in a sleepy New England town. But like any good trick, things change instantly as greedy B. B. Bosso and his crew of crooked carnies arrive to steal anything and everything they can get their sticky fingers on.

After a fateful encounter with the local purveyor of illusion, Dante Vernon, Carter teams up with five other like-minded kids. Together, using both teamwork and magic, they'll set out to save the town of Mineral Wells from Bosso's villainous clutches. These six Magic Misfits will soon discover adventure, friendship, and their own self-worth in this delightful new series.

(Psst. Hey, you! Yes, you! Congratulations on reading this far. As a reward, I'll let you in on a little secret. This book isn't just a book. It's a treasure trove of secrets and ciphers and codes and even stage tricks. Keep your ears peeled and you'll discover more than just a story - you'll find magic.)

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.
