Animal Magic

Age range: 1-4

Pages: 8

Illustrator: Gina Maldonado

In this book, anything can happen! A strange animal can suddenly change into something else - but can you guess what it will be? It has to rhyme (but you might not always guess the right answer!) Toddlers should enjoy the feel and look of this book – and might even guess the answers before their parents!

I hope you also enjoy the delightful illustrations by Gina.


“Animal Magic has become a firm favourite in my house and is an ideal quick book for a family with an older baby/young toddler who is starting to want to grab the book for themselves and get involved. The well-written rhymes and fun imagery means that it is a book you can read repeatedly without it growing tiresome.” - Bookbag

“A glorious rhyming board book” – My Book Corner

“This is one board book which I promise you will be happy to read over and over again… This is one of the best board books I have seen recently” – Parents in Touch

“If you’re looking for first books for a little one’s library, Animal Magic is definitely a fun one to include.” – Story Snug
