Ever since his parents disappeared, Carter has had plenty of adventure: running away from his con artist uncle and ending up in a carnival with B.B. Bosso. When he realizes that Mr. Bosso intends to pull off a major heist, Carter escapes and meets a group of friends who each have magical skills. It's up to this band of friends to put a stop to the evil plan. This is the first in a series that's full of fun and magic. Best for grades 4 and up.

A New York Times Bestseller and USA Today Bestselling Book
From award-winning actor, Neil Patrick Harris, comes the magical first book in a new series with plenty of tricks up its sleeve.
When street magician Carter runs away, he never expects to find friends and magic in a sleepy New England town. But like any good trick, things change instantly as greedy B.B. Bosso and his crew of crooked carnies arrive to steal anything and everything they can get their sticky fingers on.
After a fateful encounter with the local purveyor of illusion, Dante Vernon, Carter teams up with five other like-minded illusionists. Together, using both teamwork and magic, they'll set out to save the town of Mineral Wells from Bosso's villainous clutches. These six Magic Misfits will soon discover adventure, friendship, and their own self-worth in this delightful new series.
