These ten very different tales feature young magic-workers, and will appeal to a variety of readers. In traditional fashion, the collection begins and ends with its strongest stories: Bradbury's "April Witch," about a young girl with ESP who falls in love while looking through someone else's eyes, and Hearn's old "Boy Who Drew Cats," with its wonderfully gory final image. There's plenty of meat between the bread, though, especially in Henderson's classic "Stevie and the Dark" and Lee's poignant "Message from Charity." A pair of horror stories don't work too well, possibly because they're just too short; an otherwise expertly done heroic fantasy also seems too hasty, but three tongue-in-cheek episodes will provide some mild amusement. Good addition to a popular series of theme anthologies.
