Malcolm Mitchell - The Magician's Hat

The Magician's Hat

Author: Malcolm Mitchell; Illustrator: Joanne Lew-Vriethoff

  • AGES 4 - 8 
  • Genre Fantasy
Super Bowl champion and literacy crusader Malcolm Mitchell presents the story of a magician who reveals an awe-inspiring treasure from his bag of tricks — books that make every kid's dream come true!

This is not your typical afternoon at the library. It's Family Fun Day, and a magical man with a big hat has suddenly appeared. A crowd gathers to see what kinds of tricks this surprise visitor will perform. That's when the Magician pulls off his favorite trick of all. He invites kids to reach into his hat to pull out whatever they find when they dig down deep. Soon — poof! — each child comes away with something better than they could've imagined: a book that helps them become whatever they want to be, and makes their dreams come true through pages and words, and the adventures that follow. But as each child is swept into reading's powerful adventures, they can't help but wonder, "What's really making the magic happen?"
