From New York Times best-selling authors Sarah Mlynowski, Lauren Myracle, and Emily Jenkins comes the hilarious and heartfelt story of a group of magical misfits.
Nory Horace is nine years old. She's resourceful, she's brave, she likes peanut butter cookies. Also, she's able to transform into many different animals. Unfortunately, Nory's shape-shifting talent is a bit wonky. And when she flunks out of her own father's magic academy, Nory's forced to enter public school, where she meets a group of kids whose magic is, well, different.
This offbeat new series from hit authors Sarah Mlynowski, Lauren Myracle, and Emily Jenkins chronicles the misadventures of Nory and her oddball friends, who prove that upside-down magic definitely beats right side up.

My kids and I couldn't stop listening to this book. The storyline is compelling and the characters are nuanced yet approachable to even a 3rd and 2nd grader. We all reacted strongly to it emotionally - feeling angry when the characters were hurt and joy when they had their triumphs.
My hubby, 5 year old daughter, 7 year old son, and I enjoyed this book on a recent road trip. We are having a harder time finding series 1-3 hours long that we can all enjoy (we have done all the A-Z mysteries, Magic Tree House series). We really enjoyed the characters, the expressive reading, and we all were laughing multiple times throughout. We are excited to continue with the series!
