About the Book:
The reviews are in! Magical Mix-Ups is a high-quality, standout early chapter book series.
Tate Willow is pretty and nice, and most people think she’s smart. But Tate doesn’t feel smart . . . until she falls into an old well in the backyard and her mind starts working double-time. She sails through her homework and can read a book in minutes. But keeping Tate in line is becoming a full-time job for her brothers and sister. She’s strangely attracted to water of all sorts—streams, sprinklers, waterfalls. Can they get herwild water magic under control?
Lynne Jonell follows up her Minnesota Book Award finalist, Texas Bluebonnet Award Master List Title, and Junior Library Guild selection, Hamster Magic, with a fourth story of the Willow family’s rowdy run-ins with mixed-up magic.

This is the fourth book in Lynne Jonell’s magic series but it can be read as a stand alone book. Tate is a young girl that feels like she isn’t good at anything, but when she falls down a forgotten well and drinks the water at the bottom, she is suddenly good at everything. The only problem is that she can’t stay away from water – even the dangerously high river with the waterfall.
I was really happy to find this book. So many chapter books for this age group are exactly the same, but this was something different. It’s a fun adventure with light suspense that’s perfect for fans of magic.
