4 Stars
Four kids make up the Backyard Players complete with their own stage in a backyard to put on productions they write, produce and act in for friends and family. They use a magic wand for a prop and accidentally put a spell on PJ one of the Backyard Players. From there they have to figure out how to change their friend back and still perform a play that night. This was a cute story and would be an enjoyable read for any junior thespian. The children engage in problem-solving and there are some sections when they argue and have to learn to work together.
