Read full description of the books:
I'm still new to Margaret Mahy and this was a present from the guys at work. One of her more famous stories I believe. It's a nice warm story about the nature of stories and imagination and where the line between them and reality can blur, especially in the mind of a child.
Jenny Williams creates some modern and lovely artwork to fit the story with a lot of nice background details (great for a game of 'can you find..?). Plus, there's that great surprise splash page near the end.
This is the first book we actually read to Jacob with him sitting up between us. He happily stared at the pages the whole way through. I suspect we'll read this a lot more. Great for small children.
