Doug-Dennis, a charming sheep, and Ben-Bobby, an elephant, are best friends. Bored one day, they go to the circus, and that's where the trouble begins. Doug-Dennis eats Ben-Bobby's popcorn and worse, he tells a fib about it. As his lie gets bigger, Doug-Dennis floats up to find himself surrounded by fibs, and fibbers, some small, some huge, some old, some new, and some very, very strange fibs ('I invented the interweb' claims a spider). Doug-Dennis realises there's only one way back-to tell the truth.

Twelve-year-old Chili Sue Mahoney has never been outside of her small Appalachian town. Momma says Mercy Hill, Kentucky, is her “true home,” but Chili longs to see the world—to have the freedom to leave and to explore. So when Miss Matlock is brought in as the 7th grade substitute teacher, Chili and her classmate Willie Bright are thrilled. Everyone knows Miss Matlock has traveled around the globe. Why she’s come back to her childhood home after all this time is a mystery, but Chili and Willie are eager to befriend her despite the rumors.

Told in vignettes and set in 1970s Appalachia, To Come and Go Like Magic is a heartwarming and hopeful debut novel about family, friendship, and the meaning of home. From the Hardcover edition.
