Sara I've never gone back to re-read this book, but it was an absolute favorite of mine as a kid. The kind of story you can just imagine yourself being part of, over and over, trying out "half wishes" and seeing what might happen. I'm glad you think it stands the test of time, so maybe I'll have the courage to go back and re-read it!

Jennie It doesn't hold up quite as well upon rereading. But I did still love it the second time around.

What was more heartbreaking was when I read "Five Children and It" and realized that "Half Magic" is, essentially, a rip off (albeit much better than the original material).
