All it takes is a little magic…
Fourth grade was supposed to be a fresh start, but Mike's already back in the principal's office. He's not a bad kid. He just can't sit still. And now, his parents won't let him play soccer anymore; instead he has to hang out with his new neighbor Nora, who is good at everything!
Then, Mike and Nora discover the White Rabbit. It's an odd shop—with a special secret inside. Its owner, Mr. Zerlin, is a magician, and, amazingly, he believes Mike could be a magician, too. Has Mike finally found something he's good at?

“Many children are interested in magic, and this title includes instructions for performaing the various tricks and sleights of hand . . . This series-starter is sufficiently niche-filling to make it a good choice for most collections.” —School Library Journal
