Magic abounds in Edward Eager's world. Whether his young heroes and heroines are awash in a lake full of magic, making double wishes on a half-magic coin, cavorting with Robin Hood and Ivanhoe, or "thyme" traveling, the adventures simply never stop. Eager's ability to mingle reality with fantasy, his delectable wordplay, and light, witty touch make all four of these adventures pure delight. With perfect new cover art by Quentin Blake, as well as the original interior drawings by N.M. Bodecker, this collection of paperbacks--including Half Magic, Knight's Castle, Magic by the Lake, and The Time Garden--deserves an exalted place on every bookshelf of classics.
