From the Back Cover

After mistakenly helping a con man to run off with the proceeds from a Magic Lantern show, which were intended for donation to the school library, a remorseful Sara takes it upon herself to raise the money again, launching one disastrous scheme after another—until she comes upon the idea of her own Magic Lantern show.

Adapted from the award-winning, internationally acclaimed television series, the magical adventures of “The Story Girl” continue—in the spirit and tradition of Lucy Maud Montgomery—for a new generation of young readers.
