When street magician orphaned young Carter runs away from his nefarious and criminal uncle, he never expects to find friends and magic in a sleepy New England town. But like any good trick, things change instantly as greedy B.B. Bosso and his crew of crooked carnies arrive to steal anything and everything they can get their sticky fingers on. After a fateful encounter with the local purveyor of illusion, Dante Vernon, Carter teams up with five other young and like-minded illusionists. Together, using both teamwork and magic, they all set out to save the town of Mineral Wells from Bosso's villainous clutches. These six Magic Misfits will soon discover adventure, friendship, and their own self-worth in this delightful new series. Written and narrated by Neil Patrick Harris, "The Magic Misfits" is the first volume of an exciting new adventure series for young listeners ages 8 to 12. An absorbing and entertaining story from beginning to end, it should be noted that periodically throughout, Harris provides 'kid friendly' instructions on how to provide specific magic tricks. This complete and unabridged CD audio book edition is certain to be an immediate and enduringly popular addition to personal, elementary school, and community library audio book collections. (4 Hours, 4 CDs).
