HARRY MOON
BY MARK ANDREW POE

REVIEW


Abracadabra! The Harry Moon series has just released, Wand - Paper – Scissors, by Mark Andrew Poe. Harry Moon is preparing for the school talent show and decides to purchase a magic wand. The town bully will stop at nothing to beat Harry in the annual show, but Harry’s newfound magical bunny is a sure win. Harry’s parents are supportive of his blossoming talent, but remind him to keep his magic pure and good.

Harry Moon is just the kind of character you want your children to be reading about. He is brave, creative, and kind. When I received the book, I was so impressed by the artistic aspects included in this book. There are illustrations throughout this book, and small details such as page numbers, and font that are fun and new. Author Mark Andrew Poe said, “Every part of the book was thought out in great detail.” There is even a full color town map on the inside cover. Check out all of the books available on harrymoon.com.

In this origin story, Harry Moon is up to his eyeballs in magic. In the small town of Sleepy Hollow where every day is Halloween night, his archenemy, Titus Kligore, has eyes on winning the annual Scary Talent Show. Harry's sister, Honey Moon, says Harry needs better tricks so he finds a new and better magic wand. Still, Harry has a tough job ahead of him if he is going to steal the crown. He takes a chance on a magical rabbit who introduces him to the deep magic. Harry decides the best way forward is to "do no evil " while the battle to defeat Titus goes epic.
