    3. From the Magical Mind of Mindy Munson comes a world of imaginary creatures with a very real presence. Mindy's gift of foresight is accepted by her siblings, and though they are unable to see as Mindy does, they heed her every warning.

Her first-hand account gives a somber, monotonous tone to the book [...]

    4. Thoroughly enjoyed "From the Magical Mind of Mindy." Told from the view point of Mindy's older sister, it's clear from early on that Mindy has a magical mind. Mindy is a twin, and doesn't talk, except to her twin brother who then translates. I don't like to spoil books by giving away the entire plot, but the 4 siblings in this book suffer a great tragedy and end up living with their Aunt in a big spooky house. Mindy apparently can see things other's cannot, whether they are real or not it's up t [...]

    5. I love the front cover! Great job on the illustration. Pretty good drawings in the rest of the book too, even though they’re small. Now, as for the story of the bookThe chapters are short.

There are some childlike conversations such as, “I’m a boy. only girls use fans. I wouldn’t use that thing even if I was on the brink of death [...]

    6. I found the summary of this book really interesting. The background of the book cover, the incorporation of golden lines and stars throughout, is magical. It goes very well with the title.
