The Magic Misfits
The Magic Misfits | Neil Patrick Harris
From beloved award-winning actor, Neil Patrick Harris, comes the magical first book in a new series with plenty of tricks up its sleeve. When street magician Carter runs away, he never expects to find friends and magic in the small, sleepy hamlet of Mineral Wells. But the circus has come to town and, like any good trick, things change instantly as greedy B.B. Bosso and his crew of crooked carnies arrive to steal anything and everything they can get their sticky fingers on. After a fateful encounter with Dante Vernon, the local purveyor of illusion, Carter teams up with a group of five other like-minded kids. Together, using both teamwork and magic, they'll set out to save the town of Mineral Wells from Bosso's villainous clutches. These six Magic Misfits will soon discover adventure, friendship, and hopefully their own self-worth in this delightful brand new series.

I would recommend The Magic Misfits to readers who enjoy an entertaining, if somewhat simplistic, good kids vs bad guys story with cool magic tricks and illusions ✨.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2 This middle grade book was delightful! I listened to this on audio narrated by Neil Patrick Harris who made it very entertaining of course.

Another great installment in the Magic Misfits series! Theo takes center stage in the 3rd book. Torn between the Misfits, his family, and new friend Emily, Theo realizes he can‘t please everyone. The Misfits keep a watchful eye on a suspicious ventriloquist as they prepare for the town talent show. NPH‘s magical interludes teach fun card tricks.

What a fun adventure, reading about Carter and the friends he acquires. Plus there is a few magic tricks shared in the book that you can try and practice. 5⭐

I listened to this audiobook for a middle grade May challenge while cleaning this morning and it was super cute! NPH must be into magic in real life because it seems to pop up with his tv characters too

The cracks are beginning to appear in the magic misfits group, along with creepy ventriloquist dolls all over town. The pressure of the up comming talent show combined with Theo's siblings all being at home have combined to make him question his future prospects; Magic or Music. Of course the threat of Boso's goons are still looming over the group. Another great book in the series. 3/5 Stars

Hello all! Sorry I have been MIA - things with library work from home due to school closures have been busy with planning and video story times, and now with Texas schools closed till May 4th more planning. Will be sharing a couple literary photos of how my past 2 weeks have been going with #StayingHome, and what my life is looking like now.💚 THIS, is my The Reading Corner, where I film my ST.

Another great book from Neil Patrick Harris. This is a super fun story with a great cast of characters and heaps of fun extras. The audio book is AMAZING. Harris narrates and provides voices for 6 children, their mentor, the villain and his ENTIRE gang of unique goons-which includes a Barbershop Quartet.

This was delightful!!! A ragtag group of child magicians come together to stop a crime boss (also a magician). NPH‘s reading was great! He juggled the cast of characters beautifully. His writing style was also mesmerizing. I LOVED that he included lots of peeks into the world of magic- especially step-by-step directions for tricks. I‘m sure the print version of this is just as charming.

Trying to actively pick books to finish #BBRC lists (12 prompts left to go). This book should fulfill my need for a #MiddleGrade book by an actor. Since I already love these table of contents I think I am in good hands with Neil Patrick Harris!

LibrarianRyan Yeahhhh. I think I have 3 left all Midflegrade. Good luck. 3y
bibliobard @LibrarianRyan I have “real classic,“ “recommended by a kid,“ and “readers choice“ in the Middle Grace section in addition to the one mentioned before. And then of course the categories of Teen, Grown Up, and Yeah Baby have 2-3 each. 3y

Full of humor and magic tricks, Harris has presented a fun middle grade book. I was engaged throughout, and it almost had the Lemony Snicket feeling of slight snarkiness in the storytelling. Good read! My #WrittenByAnActor read for #MiddleGrade #BBRC .

raeintheworld My eight year old loves these! I think there are three now. 3y
Librarybelle @raeintheworld Nice! They seem perfect for kids who love magic. 3y
LibrarianRyan I hope it was written by an author. If it‘s a ghost that could be really cool. Or maybe a possessed typewriter. Okay. Sorry for the funnin‘ glad you liked it. 3y

This one was less a story of its own and more a lead up to the next one. I enjoyed it, but it's the one I like least of the series. The next one sounds like it'll be good, though.

This is the first time I've noticed the cool stuff under the jacket, which I really liked. I assume the other ones had it and I just didn't see it.

I chose this book because it was a gift from my uncle and I thought that it would be a great book.
This book is about a kid named Carter. He was an orphan that found his way to a town called Mineral Wells, due to running away from his uncle. He noticed that things weren't as it seems. He then meets a mysterious man and interesting things happen.

My niece decided to start a family book club. Our first book is The Magic Misfits, and she gave everyone gifts to open when we get to designated pages, like Once Upon a Book Club. I‘m so in to this! I‘m hoping to get to my first two gifts before I have to be a grown up and start prepping dinner. Thankfully we aren‘t having company today, so my house can remain a mess!

A middle grade story about five magically-inclined kids who stop a thief. As an adult I had a bit of trouble with disbelief, but I'm sure it's great for its intended audience.

I mean anything that NPH does I will support-love him. I did this one on audio because it was read by him. Fun middle grade story about a runaway meeting his “tribe” and finally finding a place he belongs. Carnival setting with magicians so a lot of fun characters. Also one of the kids has two dads 🥰

GondorGirl I really enjoyed this book (and the sequel). Cute, good values, and like you said- NPH! 4y
