The children realise this soon enough and word their wishes so that they can get all of what they want, and start off on a set of exciting adventures which take them to different places and times.
But while their wishes do come true, they find that the outcome may not be quite what they were looking for, and they are not always in the right frame of mind to make a carefully worded wish each time.
Needless to say, they have a fair share of scrapes and realise they must be careful what they wish for. Fun read. Mar 27, Spencer rated it really liked it.
I read the first 2 chapters a day or two ago and was intrigued. Today I picked it up again and read the third chapter. It had me laughing out loud.
So, I finished it today. This is, apparently, a children's book. Back in the day, children were considerably more well-read.
They would have had to be, otherwise they would miss the multitude of references to other works of literature.

For example there is the part that goes something like this not quoting verbatim, but it goes something generally like this : "This," said Katharine, "is exactly what I would call a tulgey wood.
There was no further explanation. The story just went on. How many children do you know these days that have actually read any of Lewis Carroll's works?
I suspect that this is one of those books that can be read and understood well enough by children, but can be appreciated much more by adults.
I thought it was very clever. In fact, I would not be surprised if there were things in this book that I didn't catch. The pacing was good - at times it was slow and nothing particular seemed to happen which was as it should be - after all, the children are having a dreadfully boring summer at first , but at other times!
Bam, bam, bam, bam! One thing right after another! All in all, it was Good Stuff. I recommend it.

If you have younger children, read it to them. Half Magic was written in the 50s about a family living in the 20s, so of course it's dated, but it's still as full of charm as ever.

As an adult I catch little literary references that I missed when I was young, and that adds to my love of this book more so than the others in the series.
I was an only child until I was 10, so before that, reading about this family of brothers and sisters gave me a bit of a pang.
I wanted siblings to have summertime adventures with. This was my favourite book to read during the summer followed closely by Magic by the Lake , which follows the same siblings , curled up in some quiet nook at my grandparents' house.
I found these books there one year and Nan told me I could have them. I don't know which of my dad's siblings they belonged to, but I think it was my aunt.
I kind of never wanted to ask because it felt like they had appeared just for me. Confession: I still pick up coins and make double wishes on them, hoping that they'll come true.
Sep 10, Hafsa Sabira rated it liked it. The novel is about four siblings finding a magic coin which can grant their wishes,but only half of it.
However,having a magic in life isn't that easy and the wishes must be carefully uttered,otherwise the summer adventures will turn into more than just adventures.
Gradually the siblings have to learn to control the magic in their lives while the magic will transform them too.
Not a fan of such writing style but The novel is about four siblings finding a magic coin which can grant their wishes,but only half of it.
Not a fan of such writing style but this book is great for children stepping into the world of literature. I might have loved it if I read it during my childhood but well,it wasn't a bad reading either.

One of those rare children's books that not only lives up to one's memories from childhood, but actually improves with age.
There are a lot of literary allusions that I'm sure I didn't get as a child, and the period details are more intriguing than ever.
This book was written in the s but set in the s, in Toledo, Ohio. Thus, the time depicted is nearly a century ago, in the days of streetcars, sleeping porches, silent movies and Flinch a card game.
It's suffused with a subtle nostalgia One of those rare children's books that not only lives up to one's memories from childhood, but actually improves with age.
It's suffused with a subtle nostalgia that is not so much wistful as matter-of-fact. It's the tale of a magical summer in the lives of four young children.
One might think Edward Eager is ripping off C. Lewis, but he's not. He makes no bones about the fact that he's ripping off E.
Nesbit, just as Lewis did, only Eager gives credit where it's due, working his lovely tribute right into the fabric of the story.
What I love most about this book is the beginning, in which we find a description of the long summer break, from the perspective of the children.
The summer was a fine thing, particularly when you were at the beginning of it, looking ahead into it.
There would be months of beautifully long, empty days, and each other to play with, and the books from the library. With a book of this vintage, one fears there will be elements of racism and sexism.
Indeed, chapter three contains a depiction of a villainous Arab who appears to be a crude stereotype. This set my teeth on edge as I re-read it.
But it proves to be a red herring, as the narrative takes a surprise turn. What looked like a racist caricature instead turns into a reflection on cultural appropriation and social justice.
That's how I read it, anyhow. The sexism is a little more problematic. Three of the four protagonists are girls, but it's the boy who seems to know best.
The fact that boys have privileges which girls don't is acknowledged, somewhat resentfully, from the girls' point of view, and this could open up an intriguing discussion of male privilege.
Also, the story employs the tried-and-true Disney format of the family which is incomplete without a father.
Yet, it's undoubtedly true that things would have been particularly rough for a working mother in that era. Come to think of it, I'm amazed Disney hasn't made this into a movie.
I'm kind of glad though. This is a thoroughly literary book, rife with allusions to other literature and the joy of reading.
Though it could easily be made into a movie, this is surely a story that deserves to be read. Sep 10, Blake rated it it was ok Shelves: ya-and-children , books-read-in This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

While the kids end up on some neat adventures and the book does have some funny moments, overall it didn't really live up to my hopes.
Part of it was that I didn't think the way the half magic played out was all that cool -- like when Jane is so mad that she wishes there was a fire weird to begin with Anyway, I know that this book is meant for transitional readers and I think a lot of kids would enjoy it, but, I don't think I could recommend it to them.
There's definitely some sexist stuff going on the brother always knows best I read this for class and my prof made the point that she'd only recommend this to children if they had a parent or teacher who could explain the context in which the book was written it was written in and how some of the things I mentioned are messed up..
Jul 16, Friend of Pixie F. Listened to this on CD on a trip and Logan loved it. This is the first of Eager's magic books. He was a great fan of E.
Nesbit and his books pay homage to her. A group of siblings finds a coin that grants wishes, but they realize quickly that they only get half what they wish for.
Of course, even when they figure that out, it's still true that that wishes often don't turn out quite the way you planned!

He made me re-read that chapter to daddy the next day. Edward Eager never fails to satisfy, especially if you like E.
Shelves: childrensbooks , favorites , fantasy. Five children find a silver medallion, and discover that it grants wishes - but only half-way!
Hilarity ensues. My favorite part is when they idly wish the cat could talk. And then, it sort of CAN talk, in kitty fashion.
This is my favorite book by Eager, with lots of wit and humor. A classic of children's literature, but not in a stuffy way.

This is my favorite book in the series and the one I remember best also. Charming adventure story. Like the kids. Love the magic, especially the way it works in this book.
Really imaginative. Over the weekend, I read a lovely feature in Rain Taxi on Edward Eager's Magic series, which inspired me to start rereading them in ebook from my local library system.
I'm finding ebook to be an excellent format for these, because it means I'll actually look up definitions - and Eager wasn't afraid of flexing his vocabulary.
Sep 20, quinnster rated it it was amazing. When I was a child I read a book from the library.
I sat and read in my room from cover to cover and when I got to the end I distinctly remember feeling as if I had just woken up from a dream.
I was so engrossed in the story I felt like I had been with the children on their adventures and I was so sad it was over.
But it wasn't. It was only the beginning. I spent the rest of my life like a drug addict searching for that same great high and it has been the best adventure ever.
All thanks to Edward When I was a child I read a book from the library. All thanks to Edward Eager and his amazing book.
Feb 26, Melissa rated it it was amazing Shelves: zpersonal-booklog. Reading this aloud to Beanie 7 yrs.
She adores it, as did her sisters before her. Eager cracks me up: very wry humor and realistic characterizations—in a fantasy where unlikely events are occurring.
It's a delicious combination. Written in the spirit of E. Nesbit's books, this is the tale of four siblings who find a magical charm that grants wishes—sort of.

Apr 17, Marianne rated it liked it. Half Magic is a story about some kids who are having a very boring summer.
That changes when they find a strange coin that gives you wishes you ask for. But soon they discover it gives them half only half what they ask for.
So they have to ask for two x what they want. A great book to read any day! Jul 14, Jessica rated it really liked it Shelves: middle-grade , fantasy , own , read-aloud , boy-s-books.
A delightful old-fashioned adventure. Reminded me of an E. Nesbit book! Both the feel of family drama as well as magic, I'm shocked that I haven't read Edward Eager before now.
As a kid I would have been all over this book! As an adult I'm excited to read more! View all 11 comments. Edward Eager was my very first "favorite" author.
I remember reading "Half Magic" and feeling a light turn on in my mind; my imagination was stimulated like never before.
This is the first of a series of magical adventures involving two sets of children, who are intertwined biologically and magically in Eager's later book "The Time Garden," the children of the characters in this book and "Magic By The Lake" would be saved by their own future children.
Basically, this is the story of four child Edward Eager was my very first "favorite" author. Basically, this is the story of four children, in s America, who come upon a magical coin that is so old only half of its magic is left.
Thus, they learn to wish for double of whatever they want in order to make the magic work.
Eager writes with charm and wit, and always holds the reader's attention. It's a shame that so little is known about Edward Eager.
I've searched all over the internet, but almost nothing is known of his life beyond the fact that he was inspired by the legendary childrens' writer E.
Nesbit, and went on to produce seven wonderful books of his own. It is difficult to put my finger on exactly what I didn't love about Half Magic , but I thought this review brought up some really good points.
I thought this book was a bit racist and sexist, I couldn't remember which kid was which and the idea for the magic was ill-conceived; if you can just ask for twice of something, what is the reason for halving it?
I just didn't see a point. I think this might be one of those stories we love as a child that ends up not working because we see things differen It is difficult to put my finger on exactly what I didn't love about Half Magic , but I thought this review brought up some really good points.
I think this might be one of those stories we love as a child that ends up not working because we see things differently as adults or because the story's morals and ethics are dated.
I will most likely not read another book by Eager. View all 3 comments. Nov 09, ABC rated it really liked it Shelves: older-kids.
This is about four siblings who find a magic charm that can fulfill wishes. There is a part about an Arab. He is supposed to be a not very nice guy.
I felt I had to address this in my review. I did not like the way he was portrayed, yet at the same time we have to remember that this was written in the nineteen-fifties.
