Fun with Hypnotism!
When you see the cover of Georgia Byng’s book, Molly Moon’s Incredible Book of Hypnotism, 2003, you might think it is a story about a dog. It is actually the tale of a young orphan with thin legs and splotchy skin named Molly Moon. Her life at Hardwick House is not happy but it is made bearable by her fellow orphan and best friend, Rocky. Things start to change for her when she discovers a book, Hypnotism: an ancient art explained at the library. Imagine being able to hypnotize your way to success. Unfortunately, she must evade the clutches of the ruthless Professor Nockman who will stop at nothing to possess the book. Along the way she must learn what it really means to be happy.
