Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This book, designed for the beginning, reader introduces a young magician named Kazam. Four short and simple stories are included. Each of the stories is brief enough and uses simple enough words for the child who is learning to read. The pictures are clear and directly related to the text to foster success. The first story introduces Kazam and shows how she makes things and herself disappear. The second story is about Kazam's coin trick gone awry. The third tale is about Kazam and the rabbit she pulls from her magic hat. The last story is about another trick gone askew. Kazam attempts to make a glass of water disappear but unfortunately, only the glass vanishes. This set of stories is delightful for the early reader. He or she will eagerly read about Kazam's successful¾and not so successful¾magic tricks. A "Brand New Reader" book. 2001, Candlewick Press, $11.99. Ages 4 to 8. Reviewer:Julie Eick Granchelli
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Colorful offerings for beginning readers. Each book contains four different stories based on a theme: the tricks of a somewhat inept young magician, the antics of a small Hispanic girl, and the pastimes of a friendly alien. Each tale begins with an introduction for adults, followed by eight pages of simple, one-line text. Children will enjoy the humor throughout these volumes-the magician gets soaking wet when she makes a glass disappear; the girl's preparation for a swim takes much longer than the actual event; and an endearing alien counts, paints, flies, and bakes. Readers will be familiar with most of the vocabulary and learn a few new words. A color-coded table of contents and tips for parents working with their children are plus features in each book. Suitable additions for early-reader collections.-Anne Knickerbocker, Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
