Magical Kids

Author: Sally Gardner

First line: Josie could do many tricks.

Why you should read this book: Two chapter books in one; when you finish the first story, you have to flip the book over to read the second. In "The Strongest Girl in the World," Josie Jenkins develops an amazing talent, only to be exploited by an unscrupulous American promoter. In "The Invisible Boy," poor Sam must contend simultaneously with his parents being lost in space, an evil babysitter, a small alien, and the mixed blessing of invisibility.

Why you shouldn't read this book: It's a little fluffy and precious; you may not enjoy it if you're over the age of 12.
