Magic by the Lake...

With an acknowledged debt to E. Nesbit and George MacDonald, Edward Eager's stories all have the same theme: bringing magic to ordinary lives. Fun-filled and whimsical, the stories are anything but dated. Universal themes of friendship, subtle sibling rivalry, vivid imaginations, and a sense of adventure are as engrossing now as they were when the books were first written 50 years ago.
Read them all!
Half Magic (1954)
Knight's Castle (1956)

The Time Garden (1958) [A play on the word "thyme"]
Magic or Not? (1959)
