Book Description

Feb. 28 2012 A Stepping Stone Book(TM) (Book 2)
With a POP! and a puff of smoke, the Willows' lawn mower calls it quits. A new mower will cost their parents a lot of money, money Derek had hoped to borrow for a train ticket to visit a friend. Luckily Derek and his brother and sisters find a rusty push mower tucked away in the shed. It doesn't look like much, but it turns out that it's been soaking up magic for years. And it's hungry for grass!

Can Derek earn his ticket? Maybe . . . if he, Abner, Tate, and Celia can keep the magic mower under control!

Lynne Jonell follows up her Junior Library Guild selection, Hamster Magic, with a second story of the Willow family's rowdy run-ins with mixed-up magic.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ages 3 - 6 June 28 2014

Bought this for a neighbour's child and it is a good children's book, probably in the age 3 - 6 bracket. He liked it and has asked me to read it to him several times when I am over. It is reasonable read.

5.0 out of 5 stars We loved this book Aug. 18 2014
By Mom of boys! - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Library Binding
We loved this book! The family moved into a new home (in the previous book) and the children started having surprising encounters with magic. It is fun to see how the children work together to solve the problems and learn to like each other more in the process. There are absolutely some unanswered questions at the book as to why and where the magic is coming from but that is part of the fun of a series: waiting to learn more and solve the mystery. We've read the first three books and really enjoyed the adventure. My seven year old keeps asking for when the next book is coming out. We're looking forward to reading Wild Water Magic soon!

I am an elementary school librarian, and I have been reading these books to students grade 2-4. Every grade LOVES these books, and can't wait until we start the next one!

The book was great but it as way over the head of the child. It wasn't really for the ages stated.
3.0 out of 5 stars Not much of a plot here, but likable characters. June 24 2012
By jwitt33 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I received a copy of this book free of charge from NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.

I'm always looking for good middle grade books to get my sons more interested in reading, and since they love Harry Potter, I figured this book would be even better because it has "magic" right in the title! I was unfortunately not really excited by it, though. The book is a nice short one, especially good for kids with shorter attention spans, but there's really no plot to it, and even less character development! The book takes place in one day, when the kids try to mow their large lawn with a rotary mower to save their parents the money of getting a new gas powered mower, in the hopes that Derek will be able to use that money instead to ride the train to visit some of his old friends (the family recently moved to the boonies from the city). Alas, while the mower was sitting in the shed, it soaked up magic apparently from the soil, although I was never really sure about how the magic got there in the first place. When I requested the book I wasn't aware that it was the second one in a series, so maybe all of this was explained in the first book. I just know that I was left with a lot of unanswered questions at the end of the book.

Basically, this was a book without a plot, without character development, and with unexplained questions at the end. The kids were likable, though, and the book was short (only 112 pages), so it wasn't a chore to read, but I don't think I'll be reading any more in this series.
5.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't read like an "easy" book Sept. 6 2014

Doesn't read like an "easy" book, but is easy and exciting to read for the average 2nd grader, and just as exciting to listen to,.
