Book three in the series called truly magic in a reader's hands by Jack Gantos, Newbery Medal winner for Dead End in Norvelt.

When wishing for magic, it's hard not to wish for too much.

If Jane, Mark, Katharine, and Martha had stopped to think--oh, if they had only stopped to think!--they would have ordered magic by the pound, or by the day, or even by the halves as they had in Half Magic. But no, they asked for magic by the lake--and now they have to deal with a whole lakeful of enchantment!

Soon the children find themselves cavorting with mermaids, outwitting pirates, and--with the help of a cranky old turtle--granting a little magical help to the one person who needs it most.

This funny and gentle classic series is an enjoyable read-aloud and also a strong choice for independent reading. For fans of such favorite series as The Penderwicks and The Vanderbeekers.

Enjoy all seven of the middle grade novels in Edward Eager's beloved Tales of Magic series!
