Magical Monty

author: Johanna Hurwitz
illustrator: Anik McGrory

series name:

First-grader Monty is starting to feel very grown-up. But even an almost seven-year-old finds some things — like a new magic kit — trickier than expected. 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 isn’t always a good thing, Monty’s familiar adventures embody the gentle humor of everyday life.

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