I think the characters in this book are very likable. Probably my favorite character in the book is Isabella, she has never lived anywhere besides the family hotel(I find it sad that she's never had pizza before). I bet my second favorite character is Sergei, he is a crazy magic animal seller, who also delivers pizza and Chinese take out through your closet.
The book as a whole is very witty and I like the fact that the family magic act is actually magic not mirrors and smoke. This book is full if adventure, humor, and excitement.
I hope you enjoy this wonderful book as much as I did!
