OwlCrate Jr. Unboxing – Abracadabra – December 2017 Unboxing:
Book of the Month: The Magic Misfits by Neil Patrick Harris:
Yes, this book is written by THAT Neil Patrick Harris. The one who plays Count Olaf in A Series of Unfortunate Events, the voice of Prince Gumball on Adventure Time, and of course, Steve the monkey in the Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs movies!
About the Book:
“When street magician Carter runs away, he never expects to find friends and magic in a sleepy New England town. But like any good trick, things change instantly as greedy B.B. Bosso and his crew of crooked carnies arrive to steal anything and everything they can get their sticky fingers on.
After a fateful encounter with the local purveyor of illusion, Dante Vernon, Carter teams up with five other like-minded kids. Together, using both teamwork and magic, they’ll set out to save the town of Mineral Wells from Bosso’s villainous clutches. These six Magic Misfits will soon discover adventure, friendship, and their own self-worth in this delightful new series.”
This book is signed by the author in a magical golden marker! In addition to the new read, the author has included a hand-written letter and a spectacular magic wand pencil!
