For fans of Adam Gidwitz, Chris Grabenstein, and Adam Rex comes the story of three kids who discover there are seven separate minutes a day they can make magic happen -- now available in paperback!
When three kids discover there are seven separate minutes a day they can make magic happen, they'll need all the time they can get to save the world. An ordinary day turns extraordinary when Cal witnesses the neighbor girl summon a slew of lost spare change without lifting a finger. Turns out she has a secret manual of magic spells...but they only work sometimes. And they're the most boring spells ever:
To Change the Color of a Room
To Repair a Chimney
To Walk With Stilts
To Untangle Yarn
Useless! But when the kids are suddenly transported to the world the spells come from--a world that's about to lose its last dragon--they'll have to find a way to use the oddly specific spells to save the day, if only they can figure out exactly when magic works.
From the inventive mind of Henry Clark comes a hilariously wacky adventure about magic, friendship, a lookout tower come to life, a corn maze shaped like a dragon, an actual dragon named Phlogiston, and gallons and gallons of tomato juice.
