Leon and the Place Between discussion guide


Leon desperately wants to convince his siblings Tom, Pete and Little Mo that magic really does exist. Acrobats, jugglers and a peculiar barrel organ entertain the crowd before purple smoke fills the stage and the famous magician, Abdul Kazam, appears.  When he volunteers to be in Abdul Kazam’s magic show, Leon is transported to a mysterious, exotic world, called the Place Between. This is a world alive with magic and filled with rabbits, playing cards, doves, coins and even a magician’s assistant! When he returns, not only do his brothers and sister believe in the power of magic, but we do too.
