    1. ***This review has also been posted on The Social PotatoUpside Down Magic is a very special book. I went into it expecting to like it but I ended up loving it. It’s a cute little children’s book but at the same time it is so much more than that.I would like to start off by saying that I absolutely LOVE that this book is so diverse! There are so many people of color in this book and seeing that made me happy!But also there was magic in this book so obviously it was going to be great. There wa [...]


    2. Nory has serious magic troubles. While other kids her age can turn into kittens, beavers, skunks, or elephants, Nory can never hold one animal at a time. Instead, she always ends up becoming a "bitten" (beaver + kitten) or "skunkephant" (skunk + elephant) or some other unlikely combination. Her uncontrollable skills land her in a special class filled with other kids who have "wonky" magic of their own -- exactly what she doesn't need if she ever wants to be accepted as normal. But it turns out t [...]



    3. This was such an adorable book that deals with issues of fitting in. I'm so glad that I took the opportunity to actually listen to it on audiobook. It's great for kids who are having problems fitting in or so desperately want to fit in with everyone else around them. The main character was adorable and it was great to see how much she learned about herself towards the end of the book. I think this is a great series for children who are interested in magic or prefer books that take place at magic [...]


    4. E ARC from Edelweiss Above the TreelineNory's father is the principal of Sage Academy, the premier school for magic that her brother and sister attend. When Nory auditions for a spot, her "wonky" magic leads to her cute black kitten turning into something that the admission board does not appreciate. She gets sent to live with her Aunt Margo, and attends the local school, but in the Upside-Down Magic unit with other children whose magic doesn't work quite right. She makes friends with Elliot, wh [...]


    5. As someone who has worked in special education and with children of multiple ethnicities, I immediately read deeper into Upside-Down Magic than most people. Sarah Mlynowski, Lauren Myracle and Emily Jenkins are mad brilliant. They took a girl’s worries about being different and forced her to accept them instead of following the typical narrative of self-discovery and being mainstreamed and everyone liking her, they were much more realistic with how they handled the politics of education and th [...]


    6. In my eyes, Sarah Mlynowski can do no wrong. We have another winner with Upside-Down Magic! If you enjoyed her Magic in Manhattan series then you will love this one as well. I can see me reading this book with my daughter when she's old enough to see if she will also enjoy the Magic in Manhattan series, as well as Harry Potter. LOVED IT LOVED IT LOVED IT! I can't wait for the second book to come out!



    7. Three authors may be too many. This is incredibly predictable and extremely didactic, right down to the carefully selected ethnic blend of the classmates. Adequate but no more.


    8. Upside Down Magic by Sarah Mlynowski, Lauren Myracle and Emily Jenkins is one of the best book I have ever read. In this amazing world, there are five different types of magic: Flares, Flickers, Flyers, Fuzzies and Fluxers. Flares use fire magic, Flickers make themselves and other things invisible, Flyers ( you guessed it ) fly, while Fuzzies do animal magic and Fluxers turn into animals.In this book, Nory is turned down from Sage Academy and joins the Upside Down Magic ( UDM ) class in Dunwiddl [...]


    9. One of my 9 yr old's recent favorites. This started as a read-aloud but she was so engaged that she took the book and finished it on her own (this never happens). I read it a few days later. It is a cute story and a fairly easy middle grades read. Nory lives in a world where magic exists and kids get their powers just before middle school. Some kids have magic that is "wonky" (doesn't work the way that is expected) and end up in a special class. As you can imagine there is a lot of humor involve [...]


    10. This is such an awesome book. It's about magic or more more about Nory whose magic is "wonky". Everyone has a power that fits into one of 5 different categories, only Nory's doesn't and her father, a widower, who is also the dean of the prestigious Sage Academy does not approve of her. He sends her to live with her Aunt Margo, she can attend a different school there that has a special class for "wonky magic users" called Upside-down Magic class. This is an adorable story that shows kids it's not [...]


    11. Nory has wonky magic despite her best efforts to control it. Can she be like her brother, sister and father whose magic fits into society's norms? This fantastic chapter book has a diverse cast of characters and speaks to the bullying and prejudice that children with disabilities--learning or otherwise--face on a daily basis. This topic is not heavy-handed, but obvious, and is dealt with sensitivity and aplomb. This is truly a series I confidently recommend for its excellent writing as well as i [...]


    12. This was a super-enjoyable little story. Nora is a child who feels like the black sheep of her family because she's more eccentric with her magical talents than her straight-laced headmaster father and her talented and uptight brother and sister.In a maddening turn of events, they basically disown her and she had to find her way in the world and go on a long journey to self-acceptance, all while managing a magical talent that had her morphing into bittens (beaver-kittens) and Skunkaphants (skunk [...]


    13. This book deserves to be published by Inc. because it is remarkable. The words used in the book are strong. The book is remarkable because it is relatable and it has a diverse cast of characters. It also speaks about bullying and prejudice of children with disabilities. This book relates to me because I am still trying to fit in and make new friends. Since this book is a series, I will continue reading it because I want to see the adventures of Nory and her friends. I would recommend this book [...]


    14. A cute little tale of magic and what it feels like to be different. I like the diversity of the characters in this one (you don't find many African-American main characters in fantasy books), and I like that the Upside-Down Magic class is a great representation of how Special Needs students sometimes feel in our schools. It's a fairly simple story, though, and not really complex enough to hold my attention. Great for younger readers who enjoy magical reads.


    15. Kittens and magic? I thought this book would be trite. I was wrong! The authors quickly drew me into the story, and I fell in love with Nory, who only wanted to be "normal," and her friends in be Upside Down Magic class. Highly recommend!



    16. My 7 year old picked this up at her recent Book Fair. A friend had recommended it to her so she was eager to give it a try. She read the first 5 chapters by herself and then got so excited telling me about it, that she suggested we start over and read it together. I’m so glad she did because we had a great time discussing this story. It’s a gentle introduction into magical schools and characters with special powers. Nory comes from a very magical family. Her dad is even the headmaster at on [...]


    17. There's a metaphor here for children with learning disabilities. While the wonky magic kids might need to learn differently from the other magic kids, their differences also come with unique strengths. I'm glad we found this one by accident!



    18. The story of a girl with wonky magic, this is a cute children’s book about learning to appreciate and accept ones self.


    19. My daughter kept telling me about this book, so I thought I'd read it. It's a fun, middle-grade book about a young girl who shape shifts into odd and interesting animal combinations. It enforces the idea that we should use our supposed weaknesses as strengths, and to be kind to those who are different or odd.




    20. Great book. I just read this for my 4th grade student's Literary Lunch and surprisingly really enjoyed it. It had such a great message that was told in a very unique way. I'm so glad the characters could finally appreciate their uniqueness! And that fitting into a "normal box" isn't all that it's cracked up to be. Not only do you limit yourself to an entire realm of possibilities, it's more fun to be yourself!


    21. Upside-Down Magic is a story about a girl, Nora who's magic goes a little wonky. She turns into a kitten and then something else. But when she is taken to a school for wonky students and tries to prove she isn't different, she realizes who she really us.




    22. Pages read: 36I would definitely have loved Upside-Down Magic when I was young, but I don't really like the writing at this age. Would definitely recommend it for animal-loving young'uns though.
