Publisher's summary

Simple magic tricks are what a little boy is looking for when he drags his father into a quaint, old shop. The proprietor seems to be a master of illusion - a genius at slight of hand. But, as the son becomes mesmerized, the father feels an icy hand grip his heart.

interesting short!

I was only familiar with Wells via his science fiction. this was a cute horror/mystery short. I really enjoyed the narrator as well; this is sometimes an issue with these inexpensive titles.

Classic, Creepy Short Presented Well

Mr. Harrison does a wonderful job presenting H.G Wells classic short story The Magic Shop and superbly conveys the feelings of the father taking his child through the shop of wonders.
