Author Penelope Anne Cole has a new book that is just as magical as her previous one, Magical Matthew (see my post about it here). Mea is Matthew's little sister, and she has inherited the magical power her big brother had, but with a mischievous twist.
First Matthew and now Mea have the ability to fix things that are broken just by thinking about them being fixed. Matthew used his magical power to make things better and help others, but Mea has her own idea about how to use her powers. She finds it more fun to play tricks on people than to fix things.
As we follow along on Mea's escapades, the suspense and curiosity builds about whether she will realize what is the right thing to do. The story provides a good lesson for children about making the right choices as it entertains them.
Kevin Collier has once again added to the attraction of the book with his bold, colorful, vivacious illustrations which wonderfully capture the impish spirit of Mea and reactions of her family.
Magical Mea is available from Guardian Angel Publishing and Amazon
