HALF MAGIC by Edward Eager

HALF MAGIC by Edward Eager (New HB) $14.95

Four children, Jane, the oldest, Mark, the only boy, Katherine, the middle child, and Martha, the youngest and quite difficult, were walking home from the Library, when Jane sees a nickel, or so she thinks. The nickel turns out to be a magic talisman that works by halves (e.g. I wish i were twice as far as home, then you go home). but when the children's mother borrows a nickel, and wishes she were home, she only gets half way home luckily a little man with a little beard driving an automobile comes along and drives her home, but at the end of the book that drive becomes a lot more than a way to get home.
