So far, this is my favorite Ruth Chew chapter book. First published in 1972 and reissued in 2013, Magic in the Park features a tree that moves, children who can fly, a cranky but helpful raven named Napoleon, and an old man who remembers when the park was wild and the Battle of Brooklyn was being fought. Because the setting is Prospect Park, where every island, hill, and monument that the children fly over evokes one of my favorite haunts, the magic of Chew’s writing and illustrations lingers long after the kids race each other home for birthday cake.
