I bought this book series for my 8 year old daughter. She was captivated by the illustrations and enjoyed following Matthew on his magical adventure. I image she would like some magical superpower of her own! I enjoyed the fact that Matthew chose to use his magic in a positive way, and I was delighted that Grandma Nonie guided Matthew to make his own decisions. My daughter’s favorite part of the book was the surprise ending with Matthew’s sister, and she knew there was more fun to come in the second book, Magical Mea.

More Reviews of Magical Matthew and Magical Mea

on July 31, 2015
Lovely little book. Penelope Anne Cole has a wonderful way of teaching children that doing good and helping others has it's own reward. You don't have to tell everyone about your good deeds.

What a fun little book. Mea is a stinker. She likes to play tricks with her magic. Her brother Matt tries to teach her how to use her magic for good. Great read aloud book for children.

on August 2, 2015
Who wouldn’t want magical powers to make their day a bit easier and exciting? I know I would! Come explore the magical world of second grader, Mea as she learns the responsibility of her powers. Intertwined with real life examples of everyday life of helping others and spending time with friends, Mea needs to come to terms of keeping her special talent secret. Will she reveal her magical talent to her friends or will she take the mature road and realize some things are better off kept to one’s self?

Find out in award-winning children’s author, Penelope Anne Cole’s latest book in the “magical” series as each character grows not only in age, but in maturity with each book. Ms. Cole has done a splendid job in engaging the reader with a fun and interesting story.

The illustrations created by Kevin Scott Collier leap from the page as the story comes to life through his creative talents.

Well done all around! Bravo!
