When Jordy discovers a magic wand, he learns he can do just that. Whenever he wants some peace and quiet, all he has to do is say “ABRACADABRA WHOOPSIE,” and . . .POOF! His little sister Keeka vanishes. When he’s ready for her to come back, he simply says it reversed: “WHOOPSIE ABRACADABRA.” What could possibly go wrong?
I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.
I love this silly book! As the oldest child, I understand Jordy’s frustration with his little sister and wanting her to disappear. Wouldn’t it be awesome if we could use a magic stick once in a while to make someone disappear?
Of course, Jordy is in heaven being able to poof his sister away whenever he gets frustrated or annoyed. But what if she disappears forever? He realizes that he loves his sister and would miss her. It’s a good lesson for children to learn. What an amazing gift this would be for a child who has just become an older brother or sister!
The text is easy to read, although children might need help with a few of the longer words the first time as well as one of the names. The illustrations are beautiful, bright and colorful.
About the Author
Adam Kargman lives in Los Angeles, California with his wife and their two children. He was inspired to write Abracadabra Whoopsie after witnessing the sibling rivalry between his kids, which led him to wonder what would really happen if one sibling’s dream to make the other one vanish came true.
