Valerie Kalfrin. While Half Magic has some elements that could have made it a great film, the pieces never fall into place.
Mae Abdulbaki. Half Magic succeeds with the help of Graham's stellar writing, commendable direction, Beatriz, Kinsey, D'Elia, and the rest of the cast's adherence to Graham's comedic and dramatic vision, prescient themes, and three inspiring central characters.
Alex Arabian. The resulting journey yields little motivation for emotional investment, although some amusing sitcom-style scenarios and scattered big laughs come from the periphery characters and cameos.

Unfortunately, there were some instants when the illusion did not go as planned. First, he had to cut at waist level, and that went well.
Shortly after, his wife started trying to signal that something went wrong. Unfortunately, the magician did not hear her and thought it was all part of her act.
His wife could not replace her head with a fake one, as the box malfunctioned. The show ended tragically, as she died on stage. However, fellow magician Howard Thurston , who was in the audience, realised the potential of the trick and persuaded Goldin to let him help in its development.
Thurston employed an established magician and prop builder named Harry Jansen to perfect the illusion. Jansen's improved version of the apparatus featured a smaller box from which the victim's head and feet would protrude during the sawing.
Goldin, Thurston and various other magicians employed by Goldin toured the United States performing this trick with great success at theatres belonging to the Keith-Orpheum group.
As a result, Goldin was sometimes wrongly credited as the originator of the sawing illusion. The basic form of Goldin's box sawings was as follows.
The magician presents a box which is similar in size and proportion to that used in the Selbit sawing but which is already in a horizontal position.
An assistant climbs into the box and lies down. In the process her head and hands are seen to emerge from holes in one end of the box and her feet from the other.
The box is closed and then sawn through across the middle. Dividers are placed into the box either side of the cut and it is then pulled apart so the sections can be seen clearly separated.
The assistant's head and hands are seen sticking out of one section and her feet out of the other. The box is then pushed together again and opened and the assistant emerges unharmed.
The magician presents a rectangular table just big enough to accommodate a person lying upon it. An assistant is introduced and several assistants are recruited from the audience.
The magician presents a set of restraints consisting of a sturdy collar and a pair of ankle straps, each attached to a length of chain or rope.
The assistant sits on the table with her legs stretched out and volunteers are invited to fasten the restraints around her neck and ankles.
The ropes or chains are threaded through holes in the table and the ends given to volunteers, who are instructed to pull them tight and hold them that way throughout the illusion.
The assistant is thus pulled down onto her back and secured in that position. Two halves of a large box are presented and fixed in place over the assistant, covering her completely.
Side panels are opened to show the assistant is still in place lying flat on her back. The assistant is then divided into two.
Sometimes the division is accomplished merely by pushing two metal dividing panels into slots near where the two halves meet.
Sometimes the cutting of the assistant is emphasised by sawing between the two halves of the box before sliding the dividers into place.
Catches are released to allow the table to be separated into two halves along with the box. The halves are parted and the assistant thus appears to have been cut into two completely disconnected pieces.
The box and table are then pushed together, the restraints are released and the box is opened to allow the assistant to emerge unharmed.
This version of the trick is generally associated with magician and inventor Alan Wakeling. Whilst Wakeling performed this illusion and perfected aspects of it, the general configuration and method have been attributed to an earlier magician, Virgil Harris Mulkey — , aka.
The thin model sawing is one of the most common variants performed by contemporary magicians. The basic arrangement and sequence of events is similar to that described for the Goldin box sawings see above.
However, the box appears very shallow in comparison to Goldin's, which was large by modern standards. The ends of the box are initially open when the assistant climbs in.
Once the assistant is lying down she is secured in place by having stocks placed over her neck and ankles.
Half Magic was written in the 50s about a family living in the 20s, so of course it's dated, but it's still as full of charm as ever.

As an adult I catch little literary references that I missed when I was young, and that adds to my love of this book more so than the others in the series.
I was an only child until I was 10, so before that, reading about this family of brothers and sisters gave me a bit of a pang.
I wanted siblings to have summertime adventures with. This was my favourite book to read during the summer followed closely by Magic by the Lake , which follows the same siblings , curled up in some quiet nook at my grandparents' house.
I found these books there one year and Nan told me I could have them. I don't know which of my dad's siblings they belonged to, but I think it was my aunt.
I kind of never wanted to ask because it felt like they had appeared just for me. Confession: I still pick up coins and make double wishes on them, hoping that they'll come true.
Mar 27, Spencer rated it really liked it. I read the first 2 chapters a day or two ago and was intrigued. Today I picked it up again and read the third chapter.
It had me laughing out loud. So, I finished it today. This is, apparently, a children's book. Back in the day, children were considerably more well-read.
They would have had to be, otherwise they would miss the multitude of references to other works of literature. For example there is the part that goes something like this not quoting verbatim, but it goes something generally li I read the first 2 chapters a day or two ago and was intrigued.
For example there is the part that goes something like this not quoting verbatim, but it goes something generally like this : "This," said Katharine, "is exactly what I would call a tulgey wood.
There was no further explanation. The story just went on. How many children do you know these days that have actually read any of Lewis Carroll's works?
I suspect that this is one of those books that can be read and understood well enough by children, but can be appreciated much more by adults.
I thought it was very clever. In fact, I would not be surprised if there were things in this book that I didn't catch.
The pacing was good - at times it was slow and nothing particular seemed to happen which was as it should be - after all, the children are having a dreadfully boring summer at first , but at other times!
Bam, bam, bam, bam! One thing right after another! All in all, it was Good Stuff. I recommend it. View all 4 comments. Shelves: fiction , readbooks-male-author-or-illust , speculative-fiction , novel , childrens , zz-5star , reviewed , z Loved this book in elementary school.
This is my favorite book in the series and the one I remember best also. Charming adventure story. Like the kids.
Love the magic, especially the way it works in this book. Really imaginative. View all 10 comments. Sep 10, Hafsa Sabira rated it liked it.
The novel is about four siblings finding a magic coin which can grant their wishes,but only half of it. However,having a magic in life isn't that easy and the wishes must be carefully uttered,otherwise the summer adventures will turn into more than just adventures.
Gradually the siblings have to learn to control the magic in their lives while the magic will transform them too. The book has this "The Little Peppers" and "The Little Women" vibe in the narrative.
Not a fan of such writing style but The novel is about four siblings finding a magic coin which can grant their wishes,but only half of it.
Not a fan of such writing style but this book is great for children stepping into the world of literature. I might have loved it if I read it during my childhood but well,it wasn't a bad reading either.

To view it, click here. I was excited to read Half Magic because I thought it was a pretty cool idea for a book-- that these children receive magical powers but the magic only half works.
While the kids end up on some neat adventures and the book does have some funny moments, overall it didn't really live up to my hopes. Part of it was that I didn't think the way the half magic played out was all that cool -- like when Jane is so mad that she wishes there was a fire weird to begin with Anyway, I know that this book is meant for transitional readers and I think a lot of kids would enjoy it, but, I don't think I could recommend it to them.
There's definitely some sexist stuff going on the brother always knows best I read this for class and my prof made the point that she'd only recommend this to children if they had a parent or teacher who could explain the context in which the book was written it was written in and how some of the things I mentioned are messed up..
