“A new MacLachlan! Time to sit back and savor the words and the joy of a good story. From 'On the fourth day of the fourth month of the new year of fourth grade, a famous writer came to spend time in our class' to 'It was the last hour of the last day of our last month with Ms. Mirabel,î' this book is a must read!”
-- Shirley Mullin, Kids Ink, Indianapolis, IN


Every school day feels the same for fourth graders Lucy and Henry and Evie and Russell and May. Then Ms. Mirabel comes to their class bringing magical words and a whole new way of seeing and understanding.

From beloved author Patricia MacLachlan comes an honest, inspiring story about what is real and what is unreal, and about the ways that writing can change our lives and connect us to our own stories word after word after word.
