JUST ADD MAGIC by Cindy Callaghan


* JUST ADD MAGIC was developed into an Amazon Prime original series, and began airing January 2015!

About the book: Take three friends. Add an old cookbook. Combine with cute boys and a pinch of magic…and see what kind of chaos ensues! When Kelly Quinn and her two BFFs discover a dusty old cookbook while cleaning out the attic, the girls decide to try a few of the mysterious and supposedly magical recipes that are inside. To their surprise, the Keep ’Em Quiet Cobbler actually silences Kelly’s pesky little brother and the Hexberry Tart puts a curse on mean girl Charlotte. Is it possible that the recipes really are magic? Who wrote them and where did they come from? And most importantly of all, when boys get involved, what kind of trouble are the girls stirring up for themselves?

Praise for JUST ADD MAGIC:

“A great story for the middle-grader who likes to cook, loves magic, or is just looking for a good story about three best friends in action.” – Children’s Literature

“Fun to read.” – Mother Daughter Book Club

“I loved Kelly's two best friends, Hannah and Darbie. They were both really sweet and understood Kelly better than anyone. All of the characters in this novel were unique and added a little something to the story. Kelly also had a really nice family who supported her cooking endeavors throughout the story. I also love how there are some recipes included in the back of the book. I can't wait to try them out!”
