The Well-Wishers

by Edward Eager;  illustrated by N.M. Bodecker

The wishing well is all used up, its magic drained, its enchantment gone dry.
     Or has it?
     In a reckless moment, Gordy threatens the old well, telling it to get going with its magic or else! and that seems to do the trick. Suddenly Laura, Lydia, James, and Kip--who feared their autumn would unfold without magic--are plunged into just the sort of outlandish adventures they'd longed for.
     But is it really the well's magic that transforms troublemaker Dicky LeBaron from ne'er-do-well to hero? Or keeps Appledore's orchard--and love life--in bloom? Or sends James on a doubly daring rescue of a damsel in distress?
     What does it matter? Sometimes the best kind of magic is the kind that isn't so magical at all. . . .
