Editorial Reviews

Charles Sheffield
"Mary Stanton's Magical Mysteries are the stories that every child dreams of but rarely finds. Natalie and Denny have the style, pace and plots to push Goosebumps to the back of the rack."
- Charles Sheffield, creator of Jupiter Line Young Adult Science Fiction Novels
Bruce Coville
"A delightful new series, with a pair of charming but flawed kids who act like real siblings, save that they keep stumbling into genuine magic ... Seasoned with a hint of deeper mysticism, this is fine and lively writing that will appeal to any kid with a taste for the fantastic... I can't wait to see what else Mary Stanton has up her enchanted sleeve."
- Bruce Coville, author of My Teacher Is an Alien

Meet the Author

Mary Stanton began her writing career with one of the most-beloved beast fables of our time; THE HEAVENLY HORSE FROM THE OUTERMOST WEST. She loves writing for younger audiences and loves writing about magic but, after the YA fantasy series The Unicorns of Balinor appeared in 1994, she spent most of her career in the adult mystery field. She is the author of the popular Inn at Hemlock Falls series (as Claudia Bishop), and the paranormal mystery series BEAUFORT & COMPANY.

Mary spends half of the year on her farm in upstate New York, and the other half in a small house in Florida. She is the happy owner of Promise the pony, and two adorable pet goats.

This book was the best in the series. I liked the part when the reason for the animals weird names was revealed.
