Integrates mysteries and magic tricks. I would say the level of writing is better than Cam Jansen but still easy to follow. The characters are more believable.
Would make a good chapter book for interventions for 3rd/4th grade students. Students could participate in solving a mystery.

This was a fun children's book. I can see it as fast, interesting read for this reading level.
