Sticks & Stones
Weather or Not
It's never easy when your magic goes wonky.For Nory, this means that instead of being able to turn into a dragon or a kitten, she turns into both of them at the same time-a dritten.For Elliott, the simple act of conjuring fire from his fingertips turns into a fully frozen failure.For Andres, wonky magic means he's always floating in the air, bouncing off the walls, or sitting on the ceiling.For Bax, a bad moment of magic will turn him into a . . . actually, he'd rather not talk about that.Nory, Elliott, Andres, and Bax are just four of the students in Dunwiddle Magic School's Upside-Down Magic class. In their classroom, lessons are unconventional, students are unpredictable, and magic has a tendency to turn wonky at the worst possible moments. Because it's always amazing, the trouble a little wonky magic can cause . . .
Strange things are happening at Dunwiddle Magic School -and the Upside-Down Magic class is getting blamed!Yes, Marigold did shrink Lacey Clench to the size of a gerbil. But that was an accident. And, yes, most people weren't prepared for Nory to transform into a squippy (that's half squid, half puppy) -- but it's not like Nory meant to mix up paws and tentacles. And while Bax does have the unfortunate magical condition of turning into a stone, he swears he has nothing to do with the rocky magic that's been happening in Dunwiddle's halls.When things get messy, it's easy to point your finger at the kids with the messiest magic. But the Upside-Down Magic students aren't going to let themselves get in trouble. Instead, they're going to find out what's really going on - and get their school back on track before something really wacky happens.
Some people in school are afraid of the kids in the Upside-Down Magic class. Others just call them flops. But Nory and her friends in Upside-down Magic won't let that stop them. Not with a school-wide talent show coming up!Except... Nory's afraid her fluxing magic will go wonky and upset her father. Pepper is worried that her abilities as a Fierce will make all the animals in the show run wild. Bax has some extreme new magic skills, but they can also be extremely embarrassing. And Elliott suspects there's a Sparkie spy who's looking to uncover UDM's talent-show secrets-and to use those secrets against them.In order to take the stage and make some magic, the Upside-Down Magic kids are going to have to band together... and find the right combination of talents to steal the show!
Nory Horace can turn herself into a kitten. But sometimes she adds in a bit of dragon and, well, accidentally turns into a dritten. Oops? Her friend Andres Padillo can fly high . . . but then he can't fly back down again.Nory and Andres are in an Upside-Down Magic class with other kids who have unusual magic. Now they're off on their first-ever overnight field trip! At Dragon Haven, Nory, Andres, and their UDM classmates get to swim with dragons, fly with dragons, and feed dragons. There's even a Hatchery, where they might get to see a newborn dragon.There's only one downer. The UDM kids aren't the only ones visiting Dragon Haven. There are other students there, too. Students from another school. Students with ""normal"" magic. Dragon rescue, bonfires, and pajama breakfasts won't be nearly as fun with a bunch of snooty strangers.Unless . . . maybe everything isn't as bad as it first seems. Thrown together with kids who are probably enemies, but might be friends, the UDM kids dive into their topsy-turviest adventure yet.
When Willa's upside-down magic rains, it pours. Clouds form under ceilings. Classrooms get flooded. Nory and the kids in Ms. Starr's Upside-Down Magic class always have umbrellas nearby, just in case.Willa hates being the source of such sogginess. And yet the more she rains, the worse she feels . . . and the worse she feels, the more she rains.Nory, meanwhile, can't wait to celebrate her first Bing Day -- her town's magical holiday. There's even a parade! Too bad she's stuck doing her Bing Day class project with drippy Willa. To make things worse, Elliott seems to be taking Willa's side on everything.All the storminess is threatening to flood the UDM friendships. Will they drown in misery? Or can they use their magic to make the storm clouds disappear?
