The Magician of Primary Book Review
This is the heartfelt story about a lonely boy, new to the country and overwhelmed by the language, who finds companionship in the most unlikely of forms: an imaginary friend. This friend, The Magician of Primary, guides Louie through the stresses of home life and the alienation of school life, and introduces him to a world of acceptance, tolerance, and social fluency. Louie’s world, once filled with Anti-Magic Toxin, is now quite magical indeed, as Louie is taught to believe in magic, miracles, and himself. Written by a now-thriving high school student about to begin his promising college career, the Magician of Primary is an inspirational tale to all, but especially to ESL students searching for success and acceptance in a foreign place.
