Review: There Is No Magic In This Book

This is no ordinary book, filled with ordinary things – in fact this book is far from ordinary.

The tagline for this book is If you like magic, then this is the wrong book for you and this is true, because this enchanting interactive story is so much more.

Meet The Bookkeeper who introduces readers to all things non magical. But beware as magic and imagination lurk on every page. Can you find the genie and his bottle or the children on the flying broomsticks or maybe the dancing unicorns?

Each page is a visual feast filled with a vibrancy of illustrations, colours and details. Children (and Adults) will spend hours trying to identify everything on the page while being caught up in the story.

Actor, playwright and author Michelle MacWhirter along with award winning illustrator Sophie Beer have created a cleverly crafted picture book that will allow the reader to experience fun and happiness as this book weaves its own special kind of magic.
