Grades: 3 - 5
Magic Kitten and Magic Puppy books are about a tiger disguised as a kitten and a wolf disguised as a puppy who attempt to hide in the human world until they get strong enough to defeat their enemies. In each book they end up helping a child with a problem, often social. Although these books seem written for younger children the types of problems they deal with are really geared towards middle grade children.

See note on series.Girl deals with her best friend's budding friendship with a girl she doesn’t like. Middos between classmates. Language- stupid, weird, heck (once)
|05/24/2018||Star Of The Show||Problematic||
See note on series. A girl who is acting in a movie deals with another girl actress who exhibits terrible middos. Entire book revolves around the making of a movie and discussion of the “hot” male movie star. Lots of movie culture. Girls go on a “date” with the movie star- not romantic at all. Language- weird, stupid.
See note on series.Girl’s mother is in the hospital on bedrest so girl goes to stay with her step grandmother who likes to be called by her first name. Middos between friends, annoying brother, watching movies on TV, mother likes celebrity gossip magazines. Language- creepy, weird, stupid, flipping, heck (once pg. 87)

See note on series.Girl spends the summer on her uncle’s farm and learns to get along with her difficult cousin. Middos between cousins. Brief mention of watching TV. Language- stupid, idiot
|05/24/2018||A Forest Charm||Questionable||
See note on series. A girl goes on a wilderness team building trip with her parents and deals with an overachieving girl and her father with very poor middos. In the end, she improves. Father calls his co-worker “a Know it all”.
