A Whole Other Magic

A Whole Other Magic is the jubilant ballad of a rogue fairy godmother who pawns off her wand, her wings, and all her magical powers for a sackful of old-fashioned toys, treasures, and “other things.” She is moved by the plight of children today who are playing alone, inside, “in the blue and white glow of some other spell.” To remedy their lacklustre imaginations she has a whole new kind of magic up her sleeve… With her smorgasbord of unusual bibs and bobs and nature bits, and a rather rascally Toad by her side, she invites the children to enter into play that is ramshackle-wild, open-ended, and deeply satisfying. Fall in love with the fairy godmother as you’ve never seen her before — recast as a wingless and wild playworker whose passion for free play ignites a revolution of wonder in the schoolyard. Told in an enchanting lyrical style, with 32 pages of intricate and unique illustrations, this book makes the perfect gift to spark Magic in the young and nostalgia in the young at heart.
