Twelve year-old Harry has lived and breathed magic since his early childhood. The problem is that his hometown, Appletown, is not the best place for his natural talent to blossom. Although he rehearses endlessly in his parent’s barn, he realizes that his dream is just that – a dream. One day, Harry happens upon an opportunity of a lifetime--the New York mayor has announced a magic competition due to the official opening of the Statue of Liberty. However in order to try out, one must be trained by a real magician. Poor Harry doesn’t know a single one. As fate would have it, Harry’s father runs into the renowned town magician, the Great Tesla and he promises to see Harry. Despite the young boy’s lack of knowledge, Tesla sees potential in Harry and decides to give him a chance. He invites him to his home, accompanied by his niece, Beth, and his assistant Amrold. Will Harry have what it takes to make it as a true magician?
Meet the ABC Monsters! They are big, hairy and not very scary. The ABC Monsters are on the loose and only Alice, Brian and Cherry Berry can catch them. Twenty-six cuddly ABC Monsters live within the walls of Capital Castle. Each monster represents a letter of the alphabet, but should any of the monsters go missing for longer than a day, all the letters will be wiped clean from every book in Capital Town, so it’s very important to make sure that all the ABC Monsters are always back in Alphabet Gardens before sundown. This isn’t as easy as it sounds. The ABC Monsters are curious and happy creatures so they tend to wander off from Alphabet Gardens and get lost in the process. In each adventure, Alice and her good friends Brian and Cherry Berry must search high and low for one of the missing monsters. Get set for a spellbinding series of magical adventures that engages preschool children’s imaginations, while making learning exciting and entertaining.
I received both movies at no cost in exchange for an honest review.
My boys get so excited when they see new movies come in from NCircle. My oldest has been obsessed with everything magic and science for a few years now, so he couldn't wait to watch Houdini. He is also a computer whiz, so when he was done watching he got right on the computer and looked everything he could find on the real Houdini. The movie was a great watch for all of us. The story line was great, and there was a lesson about trying your best in the movie. Both my boys watch this movie a lot now.
I gave the ABC Monsters DVD to our 4 year old little neighbor girl. The boys love giving her presents. She loved this movie. She keeps bringing it over and makes the boys watch it with her now. The animation is bright and engaging and the story and characters are adorably cute.
