THE MAGIC MISFITS, by Neil Patrick Harris, Little, Brown/Hachette Book Group, Inc.



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.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

A very young more(like a chapter book) about another Harry. I think it’s actually rather sweet with potential for a younger readership than what’s indicated. I did hear that it’s followed up with a book II.

I enjoyed it, but nothing really jumped off the pages for me.  Okay characters, okay setting, interesting magical moments… just okay.

I gave it 3-stars
