I’m loving this shiny new picture book from Amy Sparkes and Ali Pye. Filled with joyous rhymes and packed with imagination, The Magic Crayon is a wonderful adventure.
Meet Chloe, younger sister of Jack. Jack is a brother who LOVES to play tricks.
One night, after she’s been sent to her room – for something Jack did – Chloe spots,
“Her silvery crayon – there,
on the floor!
It shone and it sparkled
like never before…”
Chloe scribbles a witch outside Jack’s bedroom door. Imagine her surprise when the witch not only comes to life but turns Jack into a frog!
As the witch zooms from the room, Chloe feels bad – and works out a way to get Jack back.
The story is filled with imagination as Chloe’s drawings see her launched into a fairy-tale wood. With quick thinking she escapes trolls and wolves… but will she reach Jack before he becomes bangers and mash?!
