About The Magic Misfits Series

The Magic Misfits is the magical New York Times bestselling series from Emmy award-winning actor Neil Patrick Harris and illustrated by David Litchfield. In the first book of the series we meet Carter, a non-believer of magic. He knows magic tricks are just that – tricks. But then Carter runs away from his conman uncle and he finds himself in danger from dastardly carnival ringleader, B.B. Bosso. A chance encounter with the mysterious Mr Dante Vernon leads Carter to a magic shop, where he teams up with five other like-minded kids and the MAGIC MISFITS are born!

In The Magic Misfits: The Second Story, we discover that fellow misfit Leila didn’t have the easiest start, having grown up in an orphanage and being bullied for being different. But she has a super-cool secret skill. Leila is an escape artist! And it comes in pretty handy when belonging to a group of magical best friends.

When a famous psychic comes to town Leila and her pals realise they won’t be able to escape the big mystery coming their way. They soon find themselves chasing mad monkeys and banishing ghosts from haunted hotels. The Magic Misfits will do everything they can to save the town, will their magical skills be enough?
