    Story
    "The title says it all; except constant laughter!"
    What made the experience of listening to Magicalamity the most enjoyable?

    I listened to this with my eleven year old daughter. We laughed ourselves to tears at certain points. This is definitely not a book a parent would have to suffer through for the sake of their child(ren). From the very beginning this tale was a hilarious, magical adventure. The characters were well portrayed and the relationships were genuine and believable; well, for magical creatures anyhow.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Magicalamity?

    Our most memorable moment was when the book revealed who the mum and dad of a special young man really were. This happened at the very end of the book. My daughter and I were audibly cheering in delight. Considering the many calamities as well as the many changes that kept us in suspense, the book ended just how we had hoped.


    What does Jilly Bond bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Jilly Bond is truly a talented children's fantasy adventure writer. We have read hundreds of books in this genre and this is one of our favourite. Usually we only like books that are a part of a series. Though we would love to see a sequel to this book, we are content with how it all worked out. Ms. Bond did leave enough that a sequel could be written though. :-)


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made us laugh until we cried and our stomach muscles hurt. What a great time shared with my daughter. I am smiling, in reflection, just thinking about the characters, and events of how the story unfolded.


    Any additional comments?

    I would highly recommend this book to any child. I would also encourage parents to listen along, you will not regret it.
