I'm thrilled to announce that Matt Myklusch's (author of the Jack Blank and Seaborne series) newest middle grade series, MAJESTIC: THE MAGICIAN'S ASSISTANT, has sold to Liesa Abrams at Aladdin. It's fun, it's fast paced, and it's about what happens when we allow ourselves to believe in the power of good old fashioned magic.
Joey Kopecky isn’t smartest 12-year-old in the state of New Jersey. But everyone thinks he is. So when Joey’s perfect test scores and ability to “see through tricks” get him out of summer school and qualify him to try out for a job at the Majestic Theater working for Redondo the Magnificent, he is thrilled.Joey wants the job, but he’s not the only one applying. He will face competition from children who come from all around the world.Joey soon learns there is more to magic than putting on a good show. Dark magicians intent on destroying Redondo and wreaking havoc on the magical world are closing in, and it’s up to Joey to save them all—if only he can find a way to truly believe.
Congratulations to Matt!
