    Although the book relies a bit too much on dialogue to provide needed info and exposition, its magic system is really cool and as a whole it's a fun fantasy-mystery :) Although the book relies a bit too much on dialogue to provide needed info and exposition, its magic system is really cool and as a whole it's a fun fantasy-mystery :)

Finding it hard to keep up with his schoolwork, Mason hasn't read his book for an oral book report, but has borrowed a music box from his mother to use as a show-stopping visual. His teacher isn't convinced by this, and when Mason opens up the music box, his entire class is whisked away to Antartica! He opens the box and moves his classmates several times before men appear to arrest him for misusing magic. Mason knows nothing about this, but the men claim that he has been stealing "boons" (ordinary objects into which magic seeps). They even have him on tape! How can Mason be Magix Most Wanted criminal when he doesn't even know what the group is talking about? He is assigned a liaison, a girl about his age named who helps him escape from the agents in gray suits. She teaches him a lot about the world of magic, and the two (with the help of a querulous talking rabbit) try to figure out why he's being framed. Strengths: For someone who also has written adult books (and I know I shouldn't be prejudiced against them, but sometimes the attempts at switching from adult to MG are so painful!), he has an excellent, smooth middle grade style. The story moves along quickly, the lines are clever, and the characters realistically portrayed. What middle grade reader hasn't gotten called up short on an oral presentation? I, for one, NEVER had to use the knowledge gained by routinely reading Anne of Green Gables twice a year to extemporaneously report on it in 7th grade! The world building is solid, and the secondary story line of Mason's father's own involvement with the law adds depth. Weaknesses: This seemed a tiny bit young somehow. Thinking about why. Maybe the rabbit? What I really think: I love Whitesides' writing, and his Janitors and Wishmakers series are very popular in my library. Also, I could not get the scene from the television show Bewitched where Samantha has to appear before the Witches Council out of my head when I was reading about Mason's trial!

    Mason didn't know magic really existed until he accidentally transported his entire class to Antartica. Even more unexpected than finding out about magic, was finding out that he was wanted for magical crimes that he did not commit. Desperate to prove his innocence, he teams up with Avery, who knows the inner workings of Magix, the organization that has arrested him. Together they must work backwards to figure out not just how but why Mason was framed.

Whitesides newest book pulls readers in from the opening chapters. I loved his Janitors series and this new story shares the same magic touch. Mason's world has completely changed in the last year. His dad was arrested and convicted of robbing a bank. Mason firmly believes his dad is innocent. When sharing an oral book report on a book he didn't read, he unleashes a magic boon and transports his entire class to another location. And then the action really begins. He's pulled into a world where magic is real and ordinary objects perform magical feats. He is arrested and convicted in this magical courtroom for stealing boons even though he too is innocent. Together with a new friend, Avery, he sets out to solve what happened and save his dad. Humor meshes with adventure and enough suspense to keep readers focused and involved from start to finish. Looking forward to other stories about these characters.

    Mason's life was going great than all of a sudden BAM, his dad is sent to prison for bank robbery, which Mason knows wasn't him. Mason's grades are falling, and when he blows off a book report his mom gives him a music box to use as a visual to hopefully get him through a book report on a book he has not read but has a music box on the cover. But that is when his life changes for the second time and sends him on the run with only a Magix Jr detective and a crotchety bunny. This is a fun book wit Mason's life was going great than all of a sudden BAM, his dad is sent to prison for bank robbery, which Mason knows wasn't him.

But that is when his life changes for the second time and sends him on the run with only a Magix Jr detective and a crotchety bunny. This is a fun book with loads of action and plenty of suspense. The characters are awesome and it is just a cool book that even reluctant readers are going to love. Despite the seriousness of all the events around Mason that is going on there is still much humor to find in the book and not all of it is supplied by the bunny, who I thing is just curmudgeonly enough for everyone to fall in love with. This is going to be a hit among middle graders, and I hope we see more of Mason's adventures in the future.

    The weaknesses here have more to do with dialogue and a really rushed commentary. The strengths here are once again in Whiteside’s magic system. With Janitors, Wishmaker, Ardor Benn, and now Magic’s Most Wanted, Whitesides proves himself extremely clever when it comes to the rules of his worlds. 3.5/5
