We listened to this last summer on our road trip to Southern Oregon. The kids still talk about this book occasionally. I'm surprised that it stuck with them that long, but they have come back to it on more than one occasion to compare it to something we have seen on tv, read in another book, or have experienced out in the world. I enjoyed the unusual storyline and unique perspective of the main character. The narrator has an enjoyable reading style and is pleasant to listen to as well.

Mood and perspective are most often used in book reviews to describe writing, but they could just as easily be used to describe reading. Or, more precisely, readers. Any review is as much a reflection of the mood and perspective of the reader as it is a statement about the writing, and the joy of this book more than most, I think, is dependent on the emotional state of the reader. I had moments when I felt A Snicker of Magic was way too optimistic, saccharine, and folksy-hokey. And I had moments when I felt it was spellbinding, magical, and uplifting. I don't think my responses varied due to inconsistent writing from page to page, but to where my mind was when I chose to engage it. And while its personality may not have been the best fit for mine, overall I enjoyed its themes, quirkiness, and characters too much to stay grumpy with it even in the bad moments. In the end, I have to say this was a most enjoyable yarn.
