The Incredibly Amazing and Magical Flying Chair by Bob Shumaker and Nancy Machlis Rechtman will make you see magic in a new way. When Noah was a little boy, he used to sit on his father's lap while his father read him fantastic stories. His father was a magician. He told Noah that his chair could transport them anywhere. Even though his father had mysteriously disappeared and Noah is now in seventh grade, his love for books and magic remains the same. One day at school, Noah tells a little lie and justifies himself by thinking about that chair. After reading, he sits in the chair, closes his eyes, and feels as if he is visiting the settings of the books. This situation gives him the confidence to make up exciting stories. However, the lies become more difficult to maintain. Noah knows he has magic in his blood, so he decides to find out if the chair is truly magic.
I liked Noah for being so genuine and funny. His mother reminds him that being a magician is a difficult profession and tells him to think of magic only as a hobby. Noah agrees, but you can see he loves magic and the show. While pursuing his dreams, he must also deal with school situations, such as being picked on by the classroom bully and interacting with his classmates. Bob Shumaker and Nancy Machlis Rechtman created an interesting story with a touch of magic and humor and vivid descriptions that give insight into the characters' feelings and backgrounds. That creates a meaningful connection between all the elements of the story, making it captivating. The Incredibly Amazing and Magical Flying Chair is a fun read recommended for young readers who love fantasy.
