Click for a plot summary, descriptions of the main characters, and pictures of various editions of the books.

Summaries are forthcoming as I make my way through rereading the books. Complete or mostly-complete summary pages are in bold.

Half Magic
(1954)

In addition to Eager's seven "magic" books, he also wrote three other books for children, all of which are quite hard to find. If you can provide descriptions or pictures, please send me an email.

A word on first editions: If you have one of the old dust-jacketed editions as pictured up above with only a single copyright date, do not automatically assume it is a first edition. The dust jacketed editions/covers were used through the mid-eighties. Eager's books all have stated first editions. You'll find a notice on the copyright page,like this one from The Well-Wishers.>
