Magical Matthew is a charming story--the first in the "Magical Series" by Penelope Anne Cole. I found the story a delightful read and would highly recommend it to elementary school children. Matthew is special and unique because he has the power to fix things that are broken simply by staring at them. The story deals with love and friendship, as well as the disappointments we face while growing up. Matthew’s desire to help a disabled friend was really touching. The lesson here is that not everything that is broken can be fixed but as a group we can accomplish anything.
