Bevin Rolf Spencer's debut novel is a hit with grades 2-4! A perfect combination of mystery, magic and humor, 'Abracadabra' appeals to boys and girls alike. It's refreshing to see new children's literature that is well written, with characters and story that will feed young minds with creativity. Highly recommended for those who love the 'Magic Tree House' and 'A-Z Mysteries' series, or anyone looking for a great read! As a third grade teacher, I'm thrilled to introduce this author and book to my students. Can't wait for the next book! -Susan Kramer, M.Ed
