The Ultimate Spell-Caster - a book review

Spellbinding and whacky, the brilliant new book by comic writer, cartoonist, poet and performer Mike Barfield, is indeed a recipe for fun.

Having given The Ultimate Spell-Caster to our witchy seven-year-old Fia for her birthday, she has been up to hi-jinx ever since! And then our wicked 10-year-old went and got hold of it this morning and much to her amusement...


Of course there's no end to the desirably silly concoctions available in this flipbook, allowing everyone a chance at turning whoever into whatever, with a little bit of beastly magic along the way!

Released last month - perfectly timed for Halloween - it is well thought out and well made, its pages strong enough to withstand the flicking wrist/wand action. Question is, will your constitution be up to it?

LIFE AS IT IS VERDICT:
Screamingly good fun by the team at Laurence King Publishing.
