Magic Misfits
Magic Misfits | Neil Patrick Harris
From 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 a sleepy New England town. But 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 the local purveyor of illusion, Dante Vernon, Carter teams up with five other like-minded illusionists. 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 their own self-worth in this delightful new series. (Psst. Hey, you! Yes, you! Congratulations on reading this far. As a reward, I'll let you in on a little secret... This book isn't just a book. It's a treasure trove of secrets and ciphers and codes and even tricks. Keep your eyes peeled and you'll discover more than just a story--you'll learn how to make your own magic!)

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. 3d
Librarybelle @raeintheworld Nice! They seem perfect for kids who love magic. 3d
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. 3d

Just picked up these 2 books for my son from the library. I‘m excited to read the tagged book with him. Love Neil Patrick Harris #raisingreaders

Peddler410 Magic Misfits is so good! I read it to my daughter when it came out. Book three came out late summer/early fall — we have book two and need to read it so I can justify buy book three. 😂 4w

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.

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! 9mo

Mehso-so

Neil Patrick Harris‘s debut fantasy novel for children aged 9+ (the first in a quartet) features great illustrations by Lissy Martin and Kyle Hilton, a wonderfully chatty style and a diverse cast of characters while intertwining the fast-paced story with magic trick suggestions and games that kids should enjoy but the plot was a little unoriginal and the diverse supporting cast seldom rose above the page to achieve any real depth.

So. Much. Fun! And I got choked up at the end which is always hard when reading aloud to my 8 year old daughter. She always tells me to chill! She‘ll get it in a couple years! We are at the library returning the book and the first thing she said, “Maybe we can find book two!” Sorry kiddo, it‘s not out yet. I‘m kicking myself now, I could have attended an Anderson‘s author event with Neil Patrick Harris — only forty minutes away!
