Magical Monty

author: Johanna Hurwitz
illustrator: Anik McGrory

series name:

First grade is almost over, and Monty will soon be seven. Heís now a big brother, too, which makes him feel very grown-up. But when he tries to use the magic set his grandmother gave him, he has a little trouble. Maybe the card trick would work if he were eight years old? Motherís Day is coming, and Monty wishes he had something better to give his mom than the picture frame he made out of ice-cream sticks at school. But how is he supposed to guess from the TV call-in ad how much flowers cost, or that you need a special card to get them? Whether involving his baby sister in his library project, losing a sneaker while marching with his karate class in the parade, or learning that an exciting afternoon isnít always a good thing, Montyís familiar adventures embody the gentle humor of everyday life.

Monty tries to master a magic kit ó and finds some real-life situations tricky ó in this spot-on story about an endearing, utterly relatable first-grader.
