Product Details


“I love this book—an uproarious, thoughtful, touching, absurd, ans altogether splendid adventure.” —Karen Cushman, Newbery Medal-winning author of The Midwife’s Apprentice and Catherine, Called Birdy

“In a word—extraordinary!” —Heather Vogel Frederick, author of The Mother-Daughter Book Club

“This book may be about a magic mirror, but it casts a magic spell of its own on the reader. Brilliant!” —Kirby Larson, Newbery Honor–winning author of Hattie Big Sky
“Susan Hill Long has managed to pack everything I love into one book: adventure, humor, mystery, friendship, romance, magic, and even a pickpocket squirrel! The Magic Mirror is that rare gem of a book that everyone will love.” —Barbara O’Connor, author of How to Steal a Dog
“Young readers will cheer for the brave heroine at the center of this adventure, which is filled with mystery, intrigue, and laughter. I loved Maggie and her story!” —Augusta Scattergood, author of Glory Be
“Long’s story is full of twists and surprises. Margaret may not get a traditional happy ending, but her triumph proves all the more satisfying for it.” — Publishers Weekly

“A magic mirror, traded for Margaret’s crutch, sets off a merry fugue of medieval travels. Although the focus continually returns to Margaret, the lives of a delightful cast of characters, including her sullen mistress, a wily peddler, a boy with bagpipes, a monk, a beggar, a lonely and frightened princess, and even the wild-eyed man whose face appears to Margaret in the mirror, are gradually untangled and rewoven together.” — School Library Journal

“Margaret’s so earnest and charming that it’s impossible not to root for her.”–Bulletin
