My Review

I chose to read this e-book after receiving a free copy from the author. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

The Magician’s Turban is a short story for older children about two boys who don’t believe that a magician is real. They think he is just a trickster, so the magician uses his turban and his magic to teach the boys a lesson.

This story is creative and easy to read. Although young children could read it, there are a couple disturbing things the boys see that cause me to recommend it to older children.

I have read several of Gita Reddy’s children’s books and they are all ones that children will enjoy.
