Review: Seven-Day Magic (Tales of Magic #7)

User Review  - Rainier - Goodreads

I loved it. Five children adventure in the past, present, and future. Cats would love it, as it contains around 200 million cats (ok, that's higher than the number is), and there are six children, half boys and half girls. I just LOVE it!!! Read full review

About the author (1962)

Edward Eager (1911-1964) worked primarily as a playwright and lyricist. It wasn't until 1951, while searching for books to read to his young son, Fritz, that he began writing children's stories. His classic Tales of Magic series started with the best-selling Half Magic, published in 1954. In each of his books he carefully acknowledges his indebtedness to E. Nesbit, whom he considered the best children's writer of all time--"so that any child who likes my books and doesn't know hers may be led back to the master of us all."
