The Magic Carpet by Jessica Norrie

Elkin Hardcoves’ Review: 4.6-Stars

If you see the title of this work and think, ‘ah another fantasy work.’ You’ll be forgiven. After the title “the magic carpet” may certainly cause you to think that and while the book does involve the magic of the mind, just as reading rainbow talked about being higher than a butterfly, the concepts and themes in this book are more universal than mere fantasy.

Diane Andersen’s Review: 5-Stars

Although it sounds like the title for a fantasy novel or a retelling of the Aladdin tale, Norrie’s novel is firmly set in real-world London of the 21st century. Weaving together a rich tapestry of characters, cultures, and world views, The Magic Carpet looks at the issues of immigration and the complexities of an integrated neighborhood coming together through a school project.
