The Multiplying Menace by Amanda Marrone

Twelve-year-old Maggie Malloy can make wishes come true. But she’s learned that people like magic better in storybooks than in real life, and longs to find someone who understands her power. When she’s forced to spend a year with her grandmother, Maggie discovers an old magic repair shop—and the owner, Mr. McGuire, is a real magician, just like Maggie! She becomes Mr. Maguire’s apprentice and learns how to repair cauldrons, break disfiguring hexes, and mend magic hats that won’t stop duplicating rabbits. But Maggie is in more trouble than she bargained for when an evil magician, Milo the Magnificent, comes to town with his deadly magic act….

My 11 year old daughter absolutely loved these books. Fablehaven and Harrypotter have been her favorites for so long I thought I would never find another series to grab her undivided attention, but these did. Once she started talking about what she had read the night before she wouldn't stop. It was truly hard to get her to put them down and go to sleep.

Gold Star Award Winner! Maggie Malloy can make wishes come true, which has gotten her into more than her fair share of trouble; the kind of trouble that gets her thrown out of school and sent to live with her grandmother in Connecticut. In Connecticut, she discovers a secret about her family that leads her to a magic repair shop. After she helps the shop owner with a rabbit problem, she gets a job. But the world of magic has more in store for her than just a job in a repair shop. Maggie has to stop Milo the Magnificent and his deadly magic act before it's too late. I loved THE MULTIPLYING MENACE! The characters and plot were fun and enjoyable, and the idea of a shop where magic items can be repaired is fantastic. This is a great beginning to what promises to be an amazing series. I can't wait to read the next book, THE SHAPESHIFTER'S CURSE.
