Dorko the Magnificent by Andrea Beaty

Dorko the magnificent

This book is a 2016 Bluestem nominee. In this book, Robbie loves doing magic tricks, but more often than not, his tricks flop. When his Grandma Melvyn moves in and he has to give up his room while she recovers from knee surgery, Robbie is less than thrilled, until he discovers that Grandma Melvyn has a magical past and offers to help him improve his magic. With her help, will Robbie be able to steal the show at Talent Night? This book was just funny enough to keep you reading, but sent positive messages about friendship, perserverance, and hope.
