The Lovereading comment:
A Picture Book for kids that love Magic.
New fangled techniques can spoil a good story but here, the use of glitter on every page is nothing short of inspirational and provides that wonderful opportunity for children to linger on each spread and touch-and-feel each and every character on the page. The vibrant and magical illustrations by award-winning illustrator Lydia Monks coupled with Julia’s brilliant good versus evil storyline are guaranteed to ensure that girl’s everywhere will treasure this, almost more than anything else.
SynopsisPrincess And The Wizard by Julia Donaldson
"The princess may try seven times to escape. By changing her colour and changing her shape." But, each time Princess Camellia changes - into a blue fish, a yellow chick, a red fox or a black cat - the wicked wizard finds her and sets her another horrible task. Will this plucky princess be able to outwit him?
