We’re wishing Meg McLaren an abracadabraly brilliant Book Birthday as her debut picture book Life Is Magic appears on bookshelves today!
Magician Monsieur Lapin is auditioning assistants and Houdini the rabbit is the obvious choice – he loves magic and knows how to take care of everyone and everything in the theatre. So one night when things go wrong, Houdini tries to carry on with the show… and unfortunately that spells rabbit-shaped disaster for his human magician…
Praise for Meg and Life Is Magic;
“An exuberant debut… I love the cover design.” (Fiona Noble The Bookseller)
“A beautifully illustrated, delightfully entertaining story with lots of humourous details to spot.” (Baby London)
‘From the moment I finished the artwork for Life Is Magic until now has felt like an eternity, and I’m so glad publication day is finally here! It’s been like keeping a huge secret and I’m so excited (and relieved!) that other people can finally read it. I cannot wait to see it for the first time in a bookshop, a library and in some small child’s hands, when I will whisper, ‘I wrote that!’ a little too loudly and be deservedly shushed by booksellers, librarians and small children across the land.’ Meg McLaren
