Mira Forecasts the Future

By Kell Andrews, Illustrated by Lissy Marlin
Sterling Children’s Books, 2016

Telling the future is a gift: you either have it, or you don’t. And Mira, daughter of the famous fortune teller Madame Mirabella, just doesn’t. When Madame gazes into the crystal ball, magic swirls. When Mira looks . . . nothing. Then one day Mira gets a pinwheel and a windsock, she finds her own special way of making predictions, and ends up saving the day. This engaging tale, with a fun touch of science thrown in, helps kids understand that we all have our own special talent.

“…a fresh and unique story that has never (to my knowledge) been done. And that is a very hard task to accomplish.” – Eileen Manes, The Well-Read Review

“Underscored by the tender mother-daughter bond, this sweet tale will remind readers that there’s untapped magic in all of us.” – Dell Villa, BN Kids blog

“… meteorology trumps magic every time in a sunny story of a girl who finds that a talent for science is also helpful in predicting the future.” – BooksforKidsBlog
