Save Magic City: Fantasy and Adventure in a Chapter Book for Kids

If your kids like magic and fantasy, then they’ll want to check out the book Save Magic City, by Rocsanne Shield. In this book, a boy and his mother find a mysterious stranger who turns out to be from the 13th century! Edmund has been banished to the United States in the year 2007. During his time period, he could do magic, but he can’t do magic in modern times unless it’s used to help someone. Naturally, Edmund is fascinated by things he could never have imagined, like computers and the Internet! In the meantime, times are tough in the small town where Edmund lands. Many people are unemployed, and banks are foreclosing on houses. Can Edmund use his magic to save the town? How will his new friend Leo and the other kids help?

    Good book that teaches children the value of helping their community.

  3. The children Leo, Squirrel and Raccoon -- are the heroes -- but they could do nothing without their friends and neighbors. The magic helps as well, but as one of the friends says, "it would be boring to get everything ready made, without effort of any kind." Find a goal and share it with your friends, work together to accomplish it. In this book the common goal is to save their town from ruin.
