I remember enjoying Eager's books borrowed from the library when I was small: this one, and "Half Magic". ("Magic by the Lake" was a bit contrived though). He admired E Nesbit's magical stories and modelled his American children's adventures on them. This is funny and entertaining; we will just have a brief sigh and headshake over the "Red Indians" who exist only to scalp people, and the cannibals on the desert island who eat people..... There is an episode featuring the Underground Railway and the children help a slave family to escape in that, so he does redeem himself a bit.

Four cousins find a garden that allows them to travel magically through time (by sniffing thyme). As in all of Eager's books, however, magic is unpredictable and often uncontrollable. This is a great book to read aloud with a mixed age group because the thrills and danger are not too excessive for younger listeners, but the wit and history based humor will appeal to older kids and adults. Another good thing about Eager is that his characters are realistic and interesting. His girls are often brave and forthright, and the boys don't have all the fun. Solid moral values but with a sense of fun and self-deprecating humor. ( )

My kids and I continue to love Edward Eager's books. In this one, I especially enjoyed playing with the Natterjack's accent while reading aloud, and all of the time/thyme puns. I also love the eye-rolling the other kids in the story do in response to Jack's budding teenager-ness and the intersection of this story with those in other classics (and with Eager's Magic by the Lake) and with historical events. The premise is pretty much the same as in the other books---the kids discover an "in" to magic, they have to either figure out or make up the rules to the magic, they break the rules and all heck breaks loose, they learn some character lesson, they exhaust the magic, and the story's done. I can't figure out why I don't find this formula tiring yet. I'm just glad I don't because my daughter's not at all tired of the books yet.

With all the Nesbit-worship in Eager's books, I really need to read something of Nesbit's in addition to Five Children and It. We tried The Book of Dragons a few years ago, but my daughter seems to be very particular about the type of fantasy story she'll accept, and she didn't get into that one. ( )

If you have ever been to Boston (and everyone should go there at least once), you will know that as a city it is a bewildering mixture of modern improvements and the relics of antiquity, and it is interesting, for example, to come out from buying plastic clothespins and chocolate-strawberry-marshmallow-banana splits in a department store glittering with neon, and find yourself face to face with the Old South Church. And the streets have wonderful old names like Milk and Pump. -- Chapter 4 (p.82)
