Raves & reviews:

Praise for The Magic Mirror:

"Staniszewski creates a tense mystery akin to the 'Encyclopedia Brown' series. . . . Pamintuan's illustrations have an animated style that is engaging without overwhelming the text. VERDICT A series debut that. . .will engage readers with its fantastical mystery and honest depictions of relationships with family and friends." — School Library Journal
