This book is about a girl named Lucy who just moved to Iowa.  She finds a book/diary that was called the "Book of Story Beginnings".  She writes in the book that her dad is a magician and it comes true.  Her dad turns into a bird and flies out into the imaginary sea.  It's up to Lucy and a boy named Oscar to save him fromt he magical world they created.

Oscar is definitely the most interesting character.  He, for one, time traveled from the early 19th century to way later into the 1900's (and stayed the same age).  In the end he overcomes his loneliness and confusion and becomes a great addition to Lucy's family.

I really enjoyed this book and totally recommend it.  It's a mixture of fantasy and adventure and has three happy endings!

Choose groups to clone to:


We want students to meet exciting people, try something different, discover something about themselves, and see the world from a new perspective; put simply we want students to learn.


There is an inviting atmosphere throughout our school created by happy children, engaged families, and dedicated teachers. As a parent—the opportunity to self-select your child’s peer group, one which is aligned with your family’s values and outlook on the world, is amongst the most important educational decisions you can make.


We provide unparalleled opportunities for children, by immersing them in our working farm, outdoor adventures and a community of adults who respect the natural world.


We take the best of classical education and make it relevant by intertwining the arts with academics, resulting in a synergistic experience that creates deeper meaning. No other form of education provides for an academic experience this enriching, authentic and joyful.


We provide opportunities for children to be challenged while creating an environment that allows them to be healthy, satisfied, and productive community members.


Our school includes a 200-acre farm campus, organic gardens, and a community that values well-balanced children.
