It all begins with a strange coin on a sun-warmed sidewalk. Jane finds the coin, and because she and her siblings are having the worst, most dreadfully boring summer ever, she idly wishes something exciting would happen. And something does: Her wish is granted. Or not quite. Only half of her wish comes true. It turns out the coin grants wishes—but only by half, so that you must wish for twice as much as you want. Wishing for two times some things is a cinch, but other doubled wishes only cause twice as much trouble. What is half of twice a talking cat? Or to be half-again twice not-here? And how do you double your most heartfelt wish, the one you care about so much it has to be perfect?
Fans of Half Magic by Edward Eager, illus. by N.M. Bodecker, can rejoin Jane, Mark, Katharine and Martha and their magical wish-granting coin in celebration of a half-century of Half Magic. This 50th-anniversary edition features a special green ribbon place-marker that matches the enchanting green-ink drawings. .

I haven't read this on my apple device but I can say it's a great book for the end of 3rd grade it was really interesting especially the begging. I do admit at first it was hard to know which character was which,but besides that it's a great book that I definitely recommend
