A novel by

 
 
For decades, Ruth Chew's classic chapter books full of everyday magic have enchanted early readers. Now that they are in print again, a new generation can fall under her spell and fall in love with reading.

A little bit of magic can mean big adventure!

Andy and Robin are stuck doing chores with an old bottle of silver polish. But when they use it, incredible things happen. The salt and pepper shakers don't get shiny - they turn into birds! The dustpan doesn't clean - it starts flying! And when Andy and Robin tuck the birds' feathers behind their ears, they shrink until they're small enough to fly the dustpan out into the night. Where will their magical ride take them?
