"Ruth Chew's classic books perfectly capture the joy of everyday magic." Mary Pope Osborne, bestselling author of the Magic Tree House series
Ruth Chew's chapter books are full of simple, matter-of-fact magic that's sure to enchant budding fantasy readers.
When Katy and Louise find the key to the locked drawer in Katy's bureau, they aren't impressed by old things belonging to Katy's Aunt Martha. There can't be anything special about the old robe, broken mirror, tin box, or red rubber boots inside, can there? But when Louise dons the robe during the school play and suddenly disappears, Katy and Louise realize that they might just be able to have some grand adventures with the things that Aunt Martha left behind.
