Do you love magic? Have you ever wanted to fly? Perhaps a special magical ability is all that's required. The magic of Christmas and the joy of creativity live on in these two marvellous new picture books. 

There Is No Magic In This Book, by Michelle Macwhirter and Sophie Beer is a vibrant interactive story, readers are told by the insistent Bookkeeper that there’s no magic to be found in its pages, but eagle-eyed readers can discover enchanted surprises on every spread. Perfect for fans of interactive classics like Do Not Open this Book, The Book with No Pictures and Press Here, this story encourages young readers to look for magic in even the most ordinary places.

From award-winning author Meg McKinlay and celebrated artist Matt Ottley comes a moving and visually stunning picture book that celebrates the transformative power of the creative process from inception through recognition to celebration and releasing into the world. How to Make a Bird shows how small things, combined with a little imagination and a steady heart, can transform into works of magic.
