This book was a super fun and easy read! It is the first one in the Magic series that I have read. The book has short chapters and the storyline is exciting so the pages turn quickly! It is a great book for reluctant readers.
Abner Willow finds out he has to give a big speech in front of the whole town! He is worried he will mess up. His siblings decided he needs to practice being brave. One of the things he needs to do is eat some grasshoppers. These grasshoppers are born from eggs underneath their house. The soil in the town contains magic, so the grasshoppers have absorbed some of this magic! When Abner and his sister eat the grasshoppers something magical begins to happen!
