Magic in the Air
By Brenda B. Covert
1 The sign was splashed with color. Genna liked the sign's purple, green, and yellow swirls. Keegan read the words on the sign. His eyes grew large.
2 "A magic contest!" he exclaimed. "The city is hosting a magic contest! Magicians of all ages are invited to compete for big prizes. I'm going to sign up!"
3 "Me too!" said Genna as the wind whipped her hair across her face.
4 "Sign up for what?"

6 "The city is having a contest. It's to see who can do the best magic trick," Keegan said. Then he sniffed the air. "I smell an orange. Is it your candy?"
7 The strange child looked at the orange in his hand. "I don't have any candy." The aroma of oranges grew stronger. He began to juggle. "I only have these oranges."
8 Keegan looked again. Four oranges were circling in the air. Where had they all come from?
