"Best of all, these books are fun to read. The stories are well written and focus on subjects that interest kids." -Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
"DK Publishing has been a leader in introducing children to nonfiction. Their new Eyewitness Readers are true to form." -Boston GlobeFrom School Library Journal:
Grade 2-4-In this beginning reader, fiction and nonfiction merge in the story of a young African-American actress who wins a part in a science-fiction movie. Colorful drawings reflect Caz's experiences, while factual insets with full-color photographs explain various aspects of moviemaking. The cover of Movie Magic will appeal to fans of science-fiction movies-it shows an alien who could be straight out of Star Wars-and the text emphasizes the use of special effects and makeup. The layout is more conventional than that found in standard nonfiction DK series, making it more appropriate for beginning readers. This title is tailor-made for children who are reading independently, and especially for those with little enthusiasm for the usual fare of school stories.
