Synopsis

Magpie's Treasure by Kate Slater

Magnus Magpie is a bird with an eye for burglary. He steals only the brightest, shiniest, most dazzling things and stashes them secretly in a hollow at the top of his tree. But do all these riches make him happy? It takes a trip to the moon for Magnus to discover that all that glitters is not gold and that true happiness can often be found at home.

Reviews

The collage illustrations are busy, bright and full of sparkling energy. * EYE * With its sweet and gentle message, magical notes, and particularly its beauty, Magpie's Treasure is ideal for bedtime reading. * TheBookbag * This is a most attractively colourful picture book, each illustration dazzling in a way to lure any magpie. (It) should be pored over for hours. Kate Slater's debut as a writer/illustrator is to be welcomed. * The School Librarian * An enchanting story with truly wonderful illustrations which makes sharing it a fun, magical and memorable experience. * Carousel * Magnus Magpie is a gorgeous creation
