Eight short stories and a novella from Newbery Medalist Barnhill feature reality-bending fantasy and rich universal themes. The title story demonstrates the power -- known and unknown -- of the imagination. In "Mrs. Sorensen and the Sasquatch," a recent widow rekindles a long-dormant and unsuitable love. And award-winning novella The Unlicensed Magician introduces the secret life of an invisible girl once left for dead.
