Popular Books Waiting for the Magic SPOILER!!! First i would like to point out that this book is super cute especially if you like or believe in magic yourself. In waiting for the magic, There are two kids, William and Elinor and their father leaves them to their mother. Their mother then decides that bringing home a cat and four dogs will help the children feel better. These animals are unique in a way because they are able to communicate with people telepathically if they believe in magic but William doesnt believe in magic. However, Elinor does. Some issues arise after their father leaves such as their mother getting pregnant and William gets frustrated with his mom because she didnt tell his father that she was pregrant and him speaking out about how he doesn't like that gave him his first experience of hearing the animals. The animals helped hold the family together bringing William and Elinor's father home again although this bothered William, Elinor was ecstatic to have her father back. This book was great and i recommend it. I was touched by the way William felt through the book because i am a child of divorced parents and i could totally understand his frustration with them being separated. It isnt always easy but sometimes, with a little love and 'magic' anything can happen! Although my parents are still divorced, I wish they weren't. Its been 18 years and i am still upset about it but like i said, i recommend this book.
