5.0 out of 5 stars A different kind of magic 2 Sep 2009
Henry Goodwin, aged ten, ends up in several magical situations during his summer holiday. This book has less action than some of today's popular children's fiction. Henry does take action at camp, on a family trip, and in an emergency situation with a neighbor, but there are no swords or fighting in this book. It has plenty of thinking action with Henry trying to figure out what to do. The magic of this book is somewhat refreshing because it does not involve spells or magic wands. It is more of an investigation into the magical mystery of legends. This is a refreshing book and short enough for an adult to complete in one afternoon sitting. Children might take two or three sittings to complete.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Ageold Mystery 4 Jun 2009
The mystery in this book is how to lift a heavy heart. The young hero tries to do this and ends up on an interesting journey of discovery. The blend of real and fantasy in this book is well done. There's just enough fantasy to give us a magical perspective, while treating the subject of death very seriously and carefully. This is a unique tale and one I thoroughly enjoyed.

5.0 out of 5 stars enjoyable 20 Dec 2010
By C. Henig - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I quite enjoyed this book. It is geared to young boys and girls but anyone who likes a good story would enjoy it. It has just enough whimsy to make it magical but it is reality based and I felt a connection to it. I am recommending this book to several family and friends. To me it was quite enjoyable.
