The Lovereading4Kids comment

A stunning picture book from Emily Gravett, full of witchcraft, wizardry and magic. We meet a frog trying his utmost to turn himself into a handsome prince from a torn up spell book, resulting in inevitably confusing consequences. It has the same cut up chaotic charm of the award winning Little Mouse’s Big Book of Fears, full inventive allure and amusing visual jokes; this title will be great fun to read to your child.

Synopsis

Spells by Emily Gravett

Once upon a time, a frog found a book. After reading "Spell to become a Handsome Prince" on a page fragment he tried to piece the spell back together ...There are lots of laugh-out-loud moments to be had with the mix-and-match pages as Frog struggles through a host of jumbled spells and extraordinary guises (Rabbit? Fabbit?! Prabbit!?!) in search of his fairytale ending. Another wonderfully inventive book from the creator of "Wolves", winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal and the Nestle Children's Book Prize Bronze Award.
