Winner of Best Emerging Illustrator Award, Early Year Awards 2009
A truly magical debut from author/illustrator Katie Cleminson. When Eva is given a box of tricks for her birthday she becomes a master magician. Conjuring up the best animal musicians, party food and a very friendly polar bear, Eva has a an absolute ball with her new found talent.
And something from the publisher too:
Katie Cleminson’s books are very special things. They burst with wholly original, joyful artwork and stories that celebrate the magic of children’s lives, sparking their imaginations.
Her debut picture book, Box of Tricks, uses colour in a bold, inventive way, grabbing children and adults alike and taking them on a journey to meet Eva – the girl who becomes a master magician, conjuring extraordinary delights out of her special box, including one incredibly adorable polar bear. A celebration of creativity and imaginative play, Box of Tricks was followed by Wake Up! – the story of one boy’s day, accompanied by some furry friends who show that maybe animals and people aren’t so different after all. This fun rhythmic read-aloud has lots for children to recognize and relate to. And we have more magic to come from Katie: watch out for her new book, Otto the Book Bear. It has high adventure, a tiny bear and a passion for books!
Katie Cleminson creates worlds that children love to dive into; there’s so much to share, discover and be inspired by in them - we can’t wait to see what’s next!
Box of Tricks by Katie Cleminson
For her birthday, Eva is given a very special present - a box of tricks! She soon discovers that she is a master magician and for her first trick conjures up a rather large pet from within... Monty the polar bear. With her new friend she produces rabbits from hats, and a magical party with delicious food, the best musicians and lots of dancing. But when her guests finally begin to tire, Eva clicks her fingers and everything vanishes... Well not quite everything.
