Staff Picks: Mister Magic by Kiersten White

White’s newest book seems at first to be a frightening and heartbreaking deep-dive into those odd, early-morning, public access children’s shows some of us used to stumble upon as kids (anyone else watch Mr. Dressup on CBC at 5 am?). A reunion of the cast of a mysterious children’s show leads to increasingly disturbing realizations that the show, Mister Magic, was not as innocent as it seemed. Mister Magic stands on its own, but White’s author’s note fits it into a surprising and poignant context.
