The OED does not make clear when to use magic and when there are one or two pointers. Where the meaning is the secondary one of 'beautiful or delightful in a way that seems removed from everyday life' then it has to me magical e.g. a magical it refers literally to magic, one does not seem to use magical unless it is 'relating to, using, or resembling magic.

This book, and "The Well-Wishers," were probably my two least favorite Edward Eager magic books, because he started waffling about whether the magic was really happening or not.

I *hated* that. The thing that made his other books so much fun (especially when I first read them as a child) was that he wrote about ordinary kids who had real magic 4/5.

As the title suggests, this fantasy is a bit different from the earlier Eager magic books. The children are not % sure that the events are magical. The story does not involve talking animals, toys that come alive, time travel, or other magical elements in the other books.

Edward McMaken Eager (J – Octo ) was an American lyricist, dramatist, and writer of children's children's novels followed Edith Nesbit in featuring the appearance of magic in the lives of ordinary children.

Most of the Magic series is contemporary low fantasy. The author clearly intended to write several more books, because magic adventures come in threes - so Half Magic and Magic By the Lake miss their nonexistent triplet sibling, as do Knight's Castle and The Time Garden (if I have this right).

Magic originates largely from the worker and perhaps items used by the worker. Miracles are solely at the discretion of a supernatural being. Likewise, prayers are requests for intervention, while magic is an attempt to create change on one's own.
