Spells

Illustrated by Emily Gravett

Once upon a time, there was a frog who wanted to be a pirate...or a handsome prince...or anything aside from a small green frog, really. When he discovers a very mixed-up book of spells, he decides to take matters into his own hands. But magic spells are tricky, and frog will tranform himself into a whole menagarie of things before he reaches his fairy tale ending.

This clever picture book from award-winning author Emily Gravett will keep kids and parents both entertained with its mix-and-match pages and twist ending.

"The black backgrounds, strong use of paper torn images, and watercolor character depicitons are better than a harvest night! This creative use of art and the split pages make this book a unique standour among picture books...Recommended."--Library Media Connection
