The Big Book of Magical Mixups

Publisher: Scholastic

If you have ever wished you could turn a weedy uncle into an inflatable fairy or a bad-tempered friend into an exploding pencil case then this is the book for you!

In what is probably the most hilarious spell book ever published, Nick Sharratt's trademark illustrations combine with ludicrous instructions in a split-page, spiral-bound format to produce almost limitless possibilities for magical transformations.

Anyone wishing to find out what might happen if they stick a finger up one nostril, suck on a humbug, sniff a sorcerer's socks and eat seven lettuces should consult this book immediately.

Guaranteed to keep youngsters amused but accompanied by a warning that all spells should be taken with a large pinch of salt.
