Anything But Ordinary Addie: The True Story of Adelaide Herrmann, Queen of MagicAnything But Ordinary Addie: The True Story of Adelaide Herrmann, Queen of Magic by Mara Rockliff
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
From the creative team of Mesmerized, they introduce the first Queen of Magic. I love reading about not so well-known people and being glad their story is finally being told. The back matter tells how Adelaide Herrmann’s biography gets conjured up!

    I loved Mesmerized, particularly from a design perspective, so I’m very excited to get my hands on Anything But Ordinary Addie.

    I loved Mesmerized, so know I will look for this book of ‘magic’, Earl, & hedgehogs are so cute! Thanks for both! I know what you mean about learning about often unknown people. Picture books are letting us know about them!

    Addie sounds like a great one. I too enjoyed Mesmerized. Hedgehogs are so adorable. 🙂

    I think Addie is my post next week 🙂 I really liked it. Great author illustrator combo!

    I never read Mesmerized, though I really wanted to, but I am very excited for this one because not too many female magicians are well known.
