The Wonder Brothers Children Book PDF Summary

The Wonder Brothers by Frank Cottrell Boyce and illustrated by Steven Lenton is a story about Cousins, Middy and Nathan who both has infinite love for magic. The on-stage, cape-swirling, bunny-out-of-a-hat kind. It all comes down to persistence and practice for Middy. She uses her magic abilities to get out of difficult situations. Nathan is a complete show-off and danger magnet; he is lured to the buzz, the show, and the crowd. As a result, when the iconic Blackpool Tower mysteriously disappears on the night of the Grand Lights Switch-On, showman Nathan declares on live television that they will somehow magically return home. They wind themselves lost in Las Vegas, the home of the great master of illusion, Perplexion, the “Legend of Magic,” with the help of a piece of rock, a spangly cape, and some clever misdirection. The entertaining Nathan and Middy will keep you wondering right up to the very end with their pranks, twists, and deceptions.

The Wonder Brothers Children Book Reviews

“The children narrate enthusiastically, engaging the reader with their first-hand accounts of their ridiculously coincidental escapades. It’s beautifully silly and I couldn’t get enough of it. And I loved the magic references, to quoted magicians, to how tricks are performed, it was a perfect book for readers of 8 to 12. I might even read it to my 6-year-old.”- J Kelly (From Amazon)

“I found The Wonder Brothers to be wise, witty and wonderful. It has a magical quality and I loved it. In fact, there’s only one way to describe The Wonder Brothers and that’s – Ta-dah!” – Linda (Amazon)
