    3.5 stars.Well this was cute.It’s about Carter, a little boy whose parents disappeared a while ago, leaving him with an arrogant and egocentric uncle who uses him to steal from people.Carter himself does not steal, because he believes in earning honest money even at his young age, but he is by association stealing nonetheless. At the same time, his uncle forces him to do his magic tricks that beguile people while he himself pickpockets the spectators.Until one day Carter has had enough and dec [...]

    “For years I looked for you. I never gave up, but I never imagined that fate would bring you to Mineral Wells.""Not fate," Leila said. "Magic."Magic, fate, or coincidence. Carter wasn't sure which was which anymore.” well this was entirely cute. the magic misfits is an absolute delight I admit I read this because I wanted to see what Neil Patrick Harris' novel would be like, and because it was giving me middle grade six of crows vibes, which really is ideal. The Magic Misfits follows Carter, [...]

    Six magical misfits going on an adventure.So Six of Crows but in a middle-grade book.Which is also by Neil Patrick Harris.Badass kids kicking butt like the Dregs.

    This book was cute and I loved Neil’s narration. However, I felt as though it was predictable and too similar to other middle grade books I have read. I am sad I didn’t like this more. I doubt I will continue with the series.

    I almost gave this 2 stars, but since I love Neil Patrick Harris, I’m bumping it up to 3 stars. I was so excited when I heard he was releasing his debut MG fiction novel and couldn’t wait to read it. I love the cover!This is a children’s book with less than 250 pages, but it took me about a week to get through it. A book at this level and length normally only takes me one evening. I kept putting this down because it didn’t always keep my interest. I just didn’t feel like I was reading [...]

    Ladies and gentlemen, the very first Six of Crows middle grade-children retelling ever!

    “For me, magic can be a story, a game, a puzzle, or a surprise that takes my breath away in a single, furious gulp.” Fantastic! This is the kind of middle-grade adventure that parents are going to want to run out and grab for their family and read it over and over again. I'm starting to be convinced that Neil Patrick Harris must come from a planet far superior to ours because this man does it all and does it well. While here I am, thinking not burning my toast in the morning is a pretty awes [...]

    So, of course when I saw that Neil Patrick Harris wrote a book, I had to get my hands all over it. It's actually pretty good, with a lot of ties to Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events. They must have worked together on this book, because Snicket's review is the only one on the back cover.This is a middle-grade book about a boy named Carter. The book starts out with Uncle Sly, who is constantly trying to force Carter into being his accomplice, stealing from people using their magic tr [...]

    This review and many more can be found on my blog: Feed Your Fiction AddictionThis book is really cute—it definitely veers toward the younger MG audience, but that’s great—we need fun books for that age range. The story centers around a young boy who has seen the seedy side of magic—his father used it to con people, and Carter is rather disillusioned because of that. When another group of crooked illusionists comes to town, Carter decides something must be done. He teams up with a divers [...]

    Holy hell! I sense Six of Crows vibes, AND TOLD BY NEIL PATRICK HARRIS?!?!This is something I didn’t know I needed until now. I don’t think I can wait a month

    The Magic Misfits is a middle-grade novel coming out November 21st that I was lucky enough to get an ARC of at Yallwest! When I picked it up, I certainly wasn't expecting to recognize the name of the author--the famous Neil Patrick Harris. Usually, I'm hesitant when celebrities write novels because a part of me believes their fame assists them in the publishing process, but I also remember that I love Chris Colfer's books, so I shouldn't be this judgmental.In all honesty, this was rather cliché [...]

    [3.5 Stars] "It will be hard at times, but if you work together and stay true to one another, nothing will bar you. Alone you are weak. Together you are strong. So say the Gatekeepers of Destiny."

    "Each of you has a long road ahead. It will be hard at times, but if you work together and stay true to one another, nothing will bar you. Alone you are weak. Together you are strong. So says the universe."I'm so disappointed in myself that I talked myself out of meeting Neil Patrick Harris at Bea this year. He was signing copies of this and I didn't want to wait. Now I'm kicking myself because this book was so good and magical. Everything about this grabbed my attention and didn't let up. 🙃 [...]

    I am generally a fan of Neil Patrick Harris. But I was unfortunately not really impressed with his foray into the world of children's literature. There are so many great middle grade novels that are so well written they are appealing to adults as well. This is not one of them. It may very well be popular with children, whom it is obviously aimed towards. It's a decent book and a cute little story, but didn't stand out as anything special to me.A lot of the plot ended up feeling cliche or overdon [...]

    As you can obviously guess by the title, this book is about a group of young misfits who are also magicians I am definitely down for that. This book has such a diverse cast and even though it was quite short I got a good idea of each character and how they are different but come together for the shenanigans.The age range for this book is definitely the younger side of middle grade but I found it whimsical and full of funny moments.I am still a little iffy about the writing style and I'm hoping i [...]

    DNFing about 20% in. This book is written just like a Series of Unfortunate Events. If I want to read that series then I'll just read it. (it is one of my favorites) I really like Neil a lot but it feels like when he was being Count Olaf he read ASOUE and decided to write a book in the same style but if just didn't work well. I just wasn't hooked at all. Oh well!

    Přiznám se, že kdyby autorem nebyl Neil Patrick Harris, asi bych se k téhle knize ani nedostala. A hádám, že tak to bude mít spousta lidí. Zkrátka jsem byla zvědavá, jak si Harris, kterého znám hlavně jako herce (a mám ho jako herce ráda), s knihou pro děti poradil.A jo, nebylo to špatné. V knize má velkou roli sám vypravěč, často ke čtenáři promlouvá a narušuje příběh. To mi rozhodně nevadilo, bylo to totiž vždy úsměvné a navíc je v tom ten Harris fakt ja [...]

    You'll note no rating and no other shelves on this one. That's because I have decided not to rate itLook I picked this book up on the strength of the enthusiasm that surrounded it and the announcement of it's eminent publication and arrival. A NEW BOOK BY NEIL PATRICK HARRIS!!!!! WHOOPEE!!!! THE WORLD WILL NEVER BE THE SAME!!!!Hummmwell maybe for, you know, real young kids. This is a very young book. I'd say parents read it to be sure it's for your kids and maybe read (or listen to the audio boo [...]

    most of people read this book because of the childrens-six-of-crows vibes that is carried by this. honestly, I read this book since it written by Neil Patrick Harris (and his magical tricks lmao) and the interesting blurbs. I'm not really into this but still, it was fun and entertaining and full of diversity. I'm pretty sure I'll read the next one!

    alis
    wow, it felt like years since i started reading this book and got bored because i dont really like the storytelling, i think it's works better for kids, even tho i love middle grade books, this was different. nothing really exciting me as an adult, but i would love to read it for my kid in the future, so much love, diversity and tricks if you want to be a magician.

    Shae McDaniel
    Very cute! One of those books that made me aware that I was not the target audience, but that's okay, and I think the Shae-who-used-to-be-the-target-audience would have enjoyed it. Gave me a bit of a Pseudonymous Bosch feel.

    Kelly O’Leary
    I think that this book is great for young readers who are interested in a book that is exciting, suspenseful and funny. It is pretty entertaining and also teaches the reader how to perform a few magic tricks throughout the book. I enjoyed this book and am excited for the next two in the series to come out.

    Loved it!!! So much fun! Full review coming soon.

    Należę do tej dziwnej części świata, która Neila Patricka Harrisa nie poznała w sitcomach z matką w tytule, ale w jego musicalowych odsłonach - po raz pierwszy zobaczyłam go w Glee, potem pokochałam za numery na otwarciach nagród Tony. Jego osobowość jest nie do zastąpienia (nawet przez Cordena, so sorry), więc kiedy dowiedziałam się, że Neil napisał książkę (nawet, jeśli jakąś jej część, na spółkę z jakimś ghostwriterem, ale wierzę, że tak nie było) i do tego [...]

    The quick way to describe this book is: six kid magicians solving a mystery narrated by a goofy Lemony SnicketWe follow the story of a runaway away magician Carter, a young boy who wants to belong to a proper family. When Carter ran away from his uncle's clutches he found himself in a little town called Mineral Wells and tangled in a mystery. There he meets Leila, Theo, Ridley, Olly and Izzy. Together they create a small team called the Magic Misfists and try to reveal B.B Bosso for the crook th [...]

    This book was so adorable! And I am glad I finally got to finish it after starting it in January. We follow Carter, 11, a street magician, as he escapes the awful clutches of his Uncle Sly, and hops a train heading to Mineral Wells. Wine he tries to take food from the trash can at the carnival, he is grabbed and brought to the carnival's Headmaster, Bosso. Because of Carter's specific talents, Bosso offers him a job. But he remembers the words of another Magician, Mr. Vernon, while at the carniv [...]

    This book was light and fun and adventurous! It was just what I needed to lighten my mood at this point in time! I found myself smiling lots, laughing out loud some, and shaking my head often! It makes you see that you can be an adult and still enjoy a little wackiness and middle-grade level intrigue!The story was fun and the characters are great! Leila is my favorite; she's a little hellion in training! Having nieces and nephews who also love books, I can say that I think this is a perfect midd [...]

    I think this is an excellent middle grade novel. I loved how interactive and fun this was. The cover is adorable. The illustrations are lovely. I totally would have read this when I was a kid. I would have liked to have seen a bit more "magical" elements to it, but overall I really enjoyed myself, and I liked the theme that Neil Patrick Harris left laced within the pages. Looking forward to the next book in the series.
