Description

What do you do if the family business is magic and you’re all fingers and thumbs?

My grandchildren enjoyed this book very much. They cheered Benjamin on once he discovered the hidden magical book. They now all want a magical pop up book for Christmas or 'real' magic sets. Perhaps a selection of the authors other books might surfice. Great adventure book but had to convince them that an attic and the loft were completely different things.

I Thought this Would be the Next Magic Misfits but Alas it Wasn't the Case Hence the 3-star rating But it was a good Read all the Same.
(Thanks to Net Galley for this book).
