"A heartfelt, somber story skillfully infused with magic and adventure."-Kirkus Reviews

"Readers who choose the book anticipating a dose of magical encounters will not be disappointed, while those who like interpersonal relationships, intrigue, and growth as subplots in their stories will find Misadventures of a Magician's Son holds an action-packed touch of all three to keep readers guessing about Alex's future and incredible adventure, right up to the end." -D. Donovan, Sr. Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

Twelve-year-old Alex was taught illusion by the best. Misadventures of a Magician's Son tells the story of Alexander Finn's personal journey dealing with the death of his father, a celebrated magician, and the extraordinary gift he left behind. Uprooted from his childhood home for the seemingly hokey town of Orchard, Maine, Alex refuses to unpack and wants nothing to do with his new surroundings. But when he discovers an unusual deck of animated cards tucked in the back of his father's old desk, things begin to unravel and Alex's true adventure begins.

About the Author

Laurie Smollett Kutscera was born in Greenwich Village and grew up in Queens, New York. At the age of 11, she performed her first magic trick and was destined to be a ventriloquist with the aid of her childhood friend, Neil, who today is a real magician! But rather than follow in the footsteps of Houdini, she went on to study fine art and children's book illustration at Queens College with Caldecott medalist Marvin Bileck. Laurie is an award-winning graphic designer, a published children's book illustrator, and toy designer. Today she continues to write and illustrate and is currently working on several contemporary picture books and middle grade novels. Laurie lives on the North Shore of Long Island with her husband Nick and rescue dog, Cody. You can learn more about Laurie by going to
