Benim Sihirli Dünyam şu zamana kadar düşünülmüş en güzel çocuk kitaplarından birisi olabilir. Kitabı yayınevinin sayfasında ilk gördüğümde çok merak etmiştim çünkü kitabın sayfaları telefona indirilen bir uygulama sayesinde 3D bir hal alıyordu. Sonra kitap elime geçtiği gibi diğer okuduklarımı yok sayıp hemen başladım :D

Zach sihirli güçleri olan bir aileye sahip. Babası saati sayesinde zamanı geri alabiliyor, kız kardeşi gözlüğü ile görünmez olabiliyor ve annesi de yüzüğü ile sıradan

Bir saniye, benim ilave yıldızlarım yok muydu? Dur Zach King'in uygulamasını çıkarıp bir bakayım. Amanın cebimden yıldızlar dökülmeye başladı. Hem de evimin salonunda! İnanılır gibi değil?!

Eskiden sabah erkenden kalkar Disney Channel filmlerini izlemek için televizyonun başına otururdum. Günümün en güzel saatleri, belki de çocukluğumun en eğlenceli zamanlarından biriydi. İşte Benim Sihirli Dünyam'ı okurken o zamanlarda televizyon başına kitlenip o güzel çocuk filmlerini izler gibi hissettim.

Doyasıya eğlenip kahkahalarla sayfaları çevirdim.

Çok eğlenceli, zevkli ve yaratıcı bir kitaptı benim sihirli dünyam. Okurken çok eğlendim. En eğlenceli kısmı ise kitabın AR teknolojisi ile yapılmış olması.

So much fun while reading this book. It’s so creative that my phone was always ready with its apps.

And I can’t wait for the second book to come out and also I want to confirm if my guess about Zach’s magical item is correct!

Zach comes from a magical family, and his relatives all have objects they use to channel their magic. Zach's father has a pocket watch, but Zach can't seem to find an object of his own. His parents are worried that the magic has "skipped" him, so they decide to enroll him in public school instead of homeschooling him, so that he can learn to deal with regular people. He's lucky to make a friend in Aaron right away, but he also makes an enemy

Zach is home schooled as he is part of a magical family. But when his magic still hasn't arrived at the age of 11, his parents believe he has beeen 'skipped' and the best thing for him is to go to middle school and learn to be 'normal' like other non-magical kids.

His first day at Horace Greeley Middle School finds him inside a vending machine in nothing but his boxers. But how did it happen? When an online video of 'the trick' goes viral, his new friend Aaron is k

Zach's family is certainly not normal. His father can stop time, his sister can make herself invisible and his mother can change objects. Zach and his sister are homeschooled so they can keep the family's magic secret and also to give them time to practise their magic. The only problem is that they all have a magical object except Zach. They use the objects to channel their magic. Zach is eleven and still has not found his. Could he have been skipped? When Zach's grandad puts up on a magic show, ...more

I had my eight-year-old read this book to me for a bedtime story.
The book overall was a fantastic, age-appropriate read. He was engaged the entire time, always wanting to keep reading so he could learn what would happen next.

YAY for innovative books like this that are truly perfect for the reluctant reader. Not only do you get your standard chapter book, with a story that can hold its own, BUT then the app shows up and just adds so much more that you can keep going back to.

When it comes to the story itself - this is about a boy named (what else) Zach King who was born into a family of magicians. His little sister can turn invisible, his dad can stop time, and his mom can tranform objects. Zach is about to hit middl

Zach King's family has magical powers - except, perhaps for Zach. He is now 11 but still hasn't found the magical object that will let him unlock his magic. His parents worry that perhaps the magic has 'skipped' him so decided to send him to a regular school. On his very first day he ends up inside a snack vending machine - maybe he is magical after all. But he finds that he can't repeat the trick so has to go back to school only to find he is now a YouTube sensation thanks to his new friend Aar ...more

Such a fun, creative, and interactive book for tweens. I myself as an adult really enjoyed this book and looking forward to the sequel. I also enjoyed the interactive app that pairs with this book. I'm a fan of Zach King's Instagram shorts and this book didn't disappoint.

Zach King, een jongen uit een magische familie, maar hij heeft zelf nog geen magie of een magisch object.

Ik zag dit boekje bij een van mijn bibliotheken en ik vond het er superleuk uit zien, dus hij moest mee. En nu ik het heb gelezen moet ik zeggen dat het zeker een heerlijk boek was om te lezen, ook al had ik wel een paar dingen die ik jammer vond.

En laat ik daar dan maar mee beginnen. Ten eerste het feit dat de ouders blijkbaar niet verder kijken dan het eigen huis voo

Benim Sihirli Dünyam, ilk çıktığından beri merak ettiğim bir kitaptı. Yurtdışındaki bloggerlarda çokça görsem de nedense Türkiye'de çok kişide göremedim kitabı. Geçen alışveriş yaparken de sepeti dolduracak bir şeyler arıyordum, Benim Sihirli Dünyam bu boşluğu doldurdu 😄.

Zach King My Magical Life

Zack King’s, Magical Life, was really good. For a long time, I hated reading. After I read the first chapter, I fell in love with this book. Even though I have read this book a 100 times, I still get this heart warming feeling when I read it. Zack’s family is gifted with magical abilities but, this magic only works with a magic object, otherwise the magical abilities do not work. Zach is 11 years old in the book and has not f

6/26/2019 ~ Zach comes from a magical family, but hasn't yet found his personal magical object; hence, his move from home-schooling to middle school. Zach meets his new best bud, Aaron, and the archetypal mean girl, Tricia. Oh, and, of course, a potential love interest, Rachel. Though the characterization is rather flat, I think my elementary readers will be attracted to the cover, and possible the author, Zach King, who is apparently a popular YouTuber who makes short videos that appear as if h ...more

Miss Lori read and enjoyed learning about Zach and all his friends, while he tries to find out whether or not he has inherited magic like the rest of his family! This is the first in a series and I am sure there will be more fun awaiting Zach as he finds his way through middle school. 4th-6th graders should enjoy these books! (Some illustration/graphics throughout the book)

Such a great book but was left on a cliffhanger and there might be another book but I’ll look in it but in all it’s a great mix between a regular book and graphic novel I totally suggest it to anyone!!!

My kids like Zach's youtube content. I can appreciate fine video editing and special effect when I see them and they are family appropriate content. He's really popular and I was happy with how this turned out. Good story for kids and a great connection between two mediums.
Heidi
Great illustrations to complement the story. Will Zach ever find his magical object or will he be the only one in his family that magic has skipped over? Starting a new school can be tough but Zach and his new friend beat the bullies at their own game, in comedic style.
