Mia's Magic Uncle by Lindsay MacLeod


Mia's Magic Uncle by Lindsay MacLeod

'Your uncle is amazing', Mia's friends tell her. 'Yes', agrees Mia. 'He is magic'. Mia's Uncle Robbie is amazing - he knows lots of magic tricks, like how to produce an egg from Mia's ear, or how to turn a red hanky into a green one. One kind of magic he hasn't yet learnt, however, is how to make his legs work. But this doesn't stop him from being the best uncle Mia could wish for! Walker Stories support beginner readers making the transition from picture books to fiction in an engaging, entertaining and accessible way. Each title features three highly illustrated short stories linked by a strong central character, to help readers build familiarity and confidence. This title presents a charming story about family relationships and overcoming disability, inspired by the relationship between the author's daughter and her own brother, who now uses a wheelchair - but still loves to perform magic tricks.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
