Magical Monty

By Johanna Hurwitz
Illustrated by Anik McGrory

Monty tries to master a magic kit — and finds some real-life situations tricky — in this spot-on story about an endearing, utterly relatable first-grader.

First-grader Monty is starting to feel very grown-up. But even an almost seven-year-old finds some things — like a new magic kit — trickier than expected. Whether involving his baby sister in his library project, losing a sneaker while marching with his karate class in the parade, or learning that an exciting afternoon isn’t always a good thing, Monty’s familiar adventures embody the gentle humor of everyday life.

  • Now in paperback, the fourth book in THE series for first-graders! The humor and situations are spot-on for the age group.
  • The humor and the characters are real, endlessly endearing and very authentic.
