"Angela McAllister and Grahame Baker-Smith’s stunning picture book combines shadowy collage, painting, photography, and gilding to overwhelm readers with the power of magic." — THE TIMES (London)
This is a terrific story for children who crave mystery and magic—two elements you don’t find very often in this genre. Cheers! I do admit that the typography can be challenging to read, so I recommend looking this one over before presenting to students, etc.
And check this out:

The idea for this book germinated from an actual event!
Chris Van Dusen also illustrates the Mercy Watson Series.
(I blogged about it here.)
Have a great weekend!
