Brand new from NYT best-selling author, Annie Barrows!  Perfect for ages 8-12.

From the first page, Iggy is not afraid for us to know what he really thinks. His troublemaking endeavors are hilarious to read about and the journey through the three events that are described in this first book, two he's not very sorry about and then one he's very, very, very sorry about, will make you laugh, cringe, groan, laugh again, and ultimately be begging for more. 

Miri is the non-twin child in a family with two sets of them—older brothers and younger sisters. When her family moves to an old farmhouse in a new town, the only good thing seems to be Miri's ten-sided attic bedroom. But when Miri gets sent to her room after accidentally bashing her big brother on the head, she finds herself in the same room . . . only not quite.

Without meaning to, she has found a way to travel back in time to 1935 where she discovers Molly, a girl her own age very much in need of a loving family. A highly satisfying classic-in-the-making full of spine-tingling moments, this is delightful time-travel story will have readers clamoring for another treat of twin-inspired magic in the follow up Magic in the Mix.

For ages 6-8.

Contains books 1-3 of the NYT Best-selling series, Ivy & Bean.
