Doris is the world's worst magician's assistant, so her boss, Marvo, finds a stray dog to replace her. Hocus-Pocus Hound turns out to be great at magic, and Marvo's act takes off, but he gets greedy, so Doris and Hocus Pocus hatch a plan to set him straight in this humorous slapstick comedy.

Praise for I Am Reading: Hocus-Pocus Hound

Children's Literature
The colorful cartoon-like illustrations and the simple, short chapters keep the story moving quickly for young readers.

School Library Journal
Gr 1–3
The illustrations are a good match for the text, adding lots of color, humor, and detail. More challenging vocabulary (e.g., "audience," "applause," "fidgeting") is repeated several times, providing good opportunities for practice.
