Contributors: Corey Ann Haydu & Luisa Uribe
Age Range: Ages 6 to 10, Grades 1 to 5
Critically acclaimed author Corey Ann Haydu and illustrator Luisa Uribe make their chapter book debut with this first installment of the Hand-Me-Down Magic series, in which cousins Alma and Del discover a special treasure that brings luck to one of them, but causes a deep rift between the best friends. Brimming with illustrations and easy-to-read chapters, this is perfect for fans of Dory Fantasmagory or Ivy & Bean!
Del loves LOTS of things! Like helping out at the Curious Cousins Secondhand Shoppe. Ginormous family dinners in their apartments upstairs. And, of course, her best-friend-cousin Alma.
Alma loves her abuelita’s tasty empanadas. Lavender lemonade. Her old home by the lake. And while she’s nervous about moving in, she might just love living in the same place as her best-friend-cousin Del.
Yet despite having Del by her side, Alma isn’t quite sure she fits in with their family at 86 ½ Twenty-Third Avenue. When Del finds a special item at a neighbor’s stoop sale, the day begins to shine extra lucky for her. But she doesn’t see that everything is falling apart for Alma, even as it drives the two girls apart. Will family, friendship, and maybe a little everyday magic, be enough to make things right again?
