Praise for Magic By Moonlight - Excerpts from the Review by E K Family Books 3/10/11 ~Review By E (8-yrs. old) I liked this book a lot. I like that it was about witches, I didn't know anything about the Salem Witch Trials before. I liked that there was some magic involved and that they got to travel back in time. I really liked that they had to solve a puzzle in order to go home. I didn't want to put this book down. I really enjoyed the story and look forward to reading the other book in this series. ~Review by K (parent of E)We read this book together, switching off reading aloud at each chapter. It took a little while to get going, but once we got into the meat of the story it flowed nicely. I loved that this book was historically correct and that, like the Time Warp Trio series, it can be used as educational material as well. It is a very quick read and does not contain any challenging vocabulary; I would rate it for 8-10 yr olds. It doesn't hold the same complexities as City of Ember or Harry Potter caliber Junior Fiction, but instead is a great intro to historical fiction for children. Overall a fun read and a great experience to read it together.
