Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-In this beginning reader, fiction and nonfiction merge in the story of a young African-American actress who wins a part in a science-fiction movie. Colorful drawings reflect Caz's experiences, while factual insets with full-color photographs explain various aspects of moviemaking. The cover of Movie Magic will appeal to fans of science-fiction movies-it shows an alien who could be straight out of Star Wars-and the text emphasizes the use of special effects and makeup. The layout is more conventional than that found in standard nonfiction DK series, making it more appropriate for beginning readers. This title is tailor-made for children who are reading independently, and especially for those with little enthusiasm for the usual fare of school stories.-Pat Leach, Lincoln City Libraries, NE Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
