5.0 out of 5 stars Magical Mea,
June 5, 2013
This review is from: Magical Mea (Paperback)This book would be a pleasure for most young readers, but I think it would be especially appropriate for kids with brothers or sisters. While Mea has magical powers and her older brother, Matthew (from the author's previous book,) doesn't, he and his friend Lily need to stop the mischievous little girl from causing more problems. Can they stop her, or will she learn on her own to do what's right?
5.0 out of 5 stars Magical and Mischievous,

This review is from: Magical Mea (Paperback)Author Penelope Anne Cole's new book is just as magical as her previous one, Magical Matthew. Matthew's little sister, Mea, is the star of this book, and she has inherited her big brother's magic power, but with a mischievous twist.
As Matthew did earlier Mea now has the ability to fix things that are broken just by thinking about them being fixed. Matthew chose to make things better and help others by using his magic, but Mea has her own idea about what she wants to do. She finds it more fun to play tricks on people than to fix things.
Mea's escapades will capture a child's attention as the suspense and curiosity builds about whether she will realize what is the right thing she should do. Magical Mea provides a good lesson for children about making the right choices while it entertains them.
Kevin Collier has added to the book's attraction with his bold, vibrant, vivacious illustrations which capture the impish spirit of Mea and reactions of her family to the delight of the reader.
