    I received a copy of this book free of charge from NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.

    I'm always looking for good middle grade books to get my sons more interested in reading, and since they love Harry Potter, I figured this book would be even better because it has "magic" right in the title! I was unfortunately not really excited by it, though. The book is a nice short one, especially good for kids with shorter attention spans, but there's really no plot to it, and even less character development! The book takes place in one day, when the kids try to mow their large lawn with a rotary mower to save their parents the money of getting a new gas powered mower, in the hopes that Derek will be able to use that money instead to ride the train to visit some of his old friends (the family recently moved to the boonies from the city). Alas, while the mower was sitting in the shed, it soaked up magic apparently from the soil, although I was never really sure about how the magic got there in the first place. When I requested the book I wasn't aware that it was the second one in a series, so maybe all of this was explained in the first book. I just know that I was left with a lot of unanswered questions at the end of the book.

    Basically, this was a book without a plot, without character development, and with unexplained questions at the end. The kids were likable, though, and the book was short (only 112 pages), so it wasn't a chore to read, but I don't think I'll be reading any more in this series.
