A Snicker of Magic

Discussion Questions

1. From the mother’s story, what kind of magic would you want? (I would want to bake some magic into pies and cakes!)

2. Have you ever been the new kid(s) at school? Can you relate with Felicity and Frannie Jo?

3. Chocolate chip pork rind ice cream?? Yuck! What flavors would YOU create at Dr. Zook’s Ice Cream Parlor?

4. A boy in Felicity’s class asked why they called themselves the Brothers Threadbare. Later, Aunt Cleo tells Felicity “threadbare” means shabby, worn-out, well-used… Felicity’s teacher (Miss Lawson) tells the students they’ll need to figure out why the brothers called themselves that on their own. Do you have any guesses?

5. What would your talent be at a talent show?

6. What do you think of Jonah (the Beedle)?

7. Do you think Roger Pickle will come back?

8. What do you think of Oliver Weatherly, owner of Dr. Zook’s and original Beedle?

9. If Oliver offered you Blackberry Sunrise ice cream, would you take it? Why or why not?

10. Do you think the last sentence in chapter 10 is foreshadowing? That means when something is stated early in the book and comes true later on. 

11. What are you enjoying most about this book so far? Any predictions you would like to make?


Comment from Miss Tess: I love the silly words used in this book. Like Felicity says, “Why the hayseed you call yourself a Beedle…?” and “too spindiddly an offer to pass up.” It would be fun to be like Felicity and write down all the words we like from this novel!
