An illustrated selection of the magical poetry of Margaret Mahy, illustrated with whimsical images by David Elliot.
With a foreword by Tessa Duder, this landmark book celebrates the other works of our leading children's writer. this bestselling book now comes with a CD of poems performed by Margaret Mahy.
She can lasso with a limerick, haunt with a haiku and wrap you tight in a rhyme, quick as lightning. Her cauldron is a dictionary, her wand a mighty pen, and she stirs her words at midnight, making tempting treats for children, to please and tease and tantalise them with imaginary treasures and delectable dreams. She weaves words into adventures, sets verses wildly dancing, makes similes sing and stamp their feet and poems purr like pussycats who've eaten all the cream. Her name is Margaret Mahy. these are her spells.
Please note this copy has light scuffs on the edges of the cover, we have not tested the included CD.
