Magic in the Mix

Magic in the Mix

“Magic in the Mix,” by Annie Barrows, is the sequel to “The Magic Half”.  The  Gill family consists of two sets of identical twins plus Molly and Miri, who consider themselves to be twin sisters.  In the first book, Miri time traveled to 1935 to save Molly from disaster and bring her home.

There is more time travel in this new book because the world of 1918 is waiting to be rediscovered when the back porch is removed during the restoration of the Gills house.

The twins,Ray and Robbie, are asked to be a part of the re-enactment of the 1864 Civil War battle of Cedar Creek for a homework project. Oh, oh, more time travel because they find themselves in that actual time and area and are accused of being spies and then jailed by Union soldiers. Of course, Miri and Molly also go back to that time to save their brothers.

Annie Barrow also tells about her sources she used to establish the settings for the books, delineating documented Civil War battles, army officers and historical outcomes.

These books are for children ages 8-12.  I think this is a delightful combination of fact and fantasy and would become a favorite among that age group.

Barrow is the author of the Ivy and Bean series for children as well as adult titles including “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.”

 

 

Marion Lovato is the author of Sam, the Superkitty.  Her book describes an ordinary cat changing into a superhero to protect his family from things that go bump in the night.  Available on Amazon as a paperback or Kindle edition.  http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1604588667
