Series: The Magic Shop (Book #1)
by Kate Egan, Mike Lane Illustrated by Eric Wight

Fourth grade was supposed to be a fresh start, but Mike's already back in the principal's office. He's not a bad kid; he just can't sit still. And now, his parents won't let him play soccer anymore. Instead he has to hang out with his new neighbor Nora, who is good at everything!

Together Mike and Nora discover the White Rabbit. It's an odd shop, with a special secret inside. Its owner, Mr. Zerlin, is a magician, and he believes Mike could be a magician too. Has Mike finally found something he's good at?
