Be careful what you wish for! (especially if you are in possession of a magical book) This lesson is learned by five friends -- siblings John and Susan, who live with their eccentric granny, and their across-the-street neighbors Barnaby, Abigail (Abbie), and Fredericka -- when Susan checks an intriguing seven-day book out of the local library. Delightful adventures ensue, as each of the children takes a turn at wishing on the book's magical powers. The episodes are, for the most part, anchored in other books (or book genres), and the story is told with great wit and humor. I thoroughly enjoyed this children's book! ( )

In SEVEN-DAY MAGIC, five children - siblings John and Susan, and siblings Barnaby, Abbie, and Fredericka - check out a book from the library that contains a story about their morning; the rest of the book is theirs to fill by wishing for adventure. They take turns, one each day, learning the limits of the magic.

Quotes

And when a dragon feels small, it is. (45)

"I guess that's the way with wizards...They let the witches do the work and then take the credit. It's the same way in stories." (Barnaby, 49)

"Everybody has to go to...any...magic country...in his own way. The adventures that are written down in books have already been. If we tried to horn in on them, we'd just be tagging along. So we have to make our own adventures. It's as if there were different doors." (Barnaby, 53)

...when best friends fall out, it is usually worse than any other quarrel. All their regard for each other seems to sour and turn to spite and meanness. And the hurts that friends can do each other cut deeper and take longer to heal. (162)

On every hand were what looked like thousands of books, ranged on shelves, stacks and stacks of them.
"Think of all those that we haven't read yet!" said Abbie.
"Maybe some of them have magic inside, too!" said Fredericka.
"All of them, I should think," said Barnaby, "one way or another." (188) ( )

I remember being so angry with Edward Eager when I began to read E Nesbit and realized how many plots he had stolen that I could never quite forgive him. However, Seven Day Magic was one of his more original creations, and I loved it. ( )

I just finished reading the last chapter of this book to my kids at lunch today, and I feel a little bit sad that we're done with the series.

I keep looking for more biographical information about Edward Eager (the fact that he was an Ohioan is especially intriguing to me; I kind of collect Ohioans), but there's just not much information out there about him.

At any rate, my children and I loved this book. I think I liked The Time Garden a little better, but the chapter in this one where Grannie got her wish almost edged out all of the others. The kids and I read that while curled up together on my bed, and the story of Grannie's courtship (and the fact that that's the moment she chose to revisit) brought tears to my eyes. The other chapters were somewhat less poignant, but they all dealt a great deal with cooperation, personal sacrifice, and the challenges of friendship (and family relationships), which are subjects I like to discuss with my kids.

Before we read this series, my daughter only wanted non-magical stories. She liked talking animals (Wilbur and Charlotte, Babe and Fly) and gave special dispensation to the Magic Tree House books because they dealt with history, but she mostly claimed magic was too unrealistic. Eager's books helped her start to enjoy the process of suspending her disbelief and just immersing herself in the story. We've since read Edith Nesbit's The Complete Book of Dragons, and she's now working her way through the Harry Potter series. It's quite a big change for a girl who six months ago turned her nose up at any book that remotely smelled of magic. ( )
