I was totally sucked in... characterization was fun, magic introduced in a gradual manner as Rose learned about it and I loved Freddie, Isabella and Gus as much as Rose. This is a complete four book series in England and we're finally getting it. Can't wait for the others! " - Librarian, Oak Park Public Library "Magic, mystery, adventure, and friendship - this book has it all. The characters are delightful children, each searching for their special place in the world.
