The wishing well is all used up, its magic drained, its enchantment gone dry.
     Or has it?
     In a reckless moment, Gordy threatens the old well, telling it to get going with its magic or else! and suddenly he and his friends are plunged into just the sort of adventures they’d longed for.
     But is it really the well’s magic that transforms troublemaker Dicky LeBaron from ne’er-do-well to hero? Or keeps Appledore’s orchard in bloom? Or sends James on a daring rescue of a damsel in distress?
     Does it matter? Sometimes the best kind of magic is the kind that isn’t so magical at all. . . .
