I love Neil Patrick Harris and was excited when I heard that he was writing a kids book. The Magic Misfits is a cute story that doesn't take long to finish and in fact is something that I think reluctant readers who enjoy reading. I love how the group of kids in the book come together and support each other. I also liked the humor of the book and the magic tricks that are spaced throughout that kids could learn to perform in real-life.
Adventure, mystery, drama, and misdirection, combined with a humorously irreverent narration and a good number of tips for aspiring magicians. It's obvious Harris has spent his life around stories and knows how to tell them.
This book is great for the budding magician, as well as the budding reader who loves adventure. The main character, Carter, is a good kid that has experienced hard times, but he does not let those times tarnish his character. Anyone (young or young at heart) who picks up this book will enjoy it.
