really liked it
bookshelves: frogs, magic, picturebooks, preschool
Read in December, 2009

Our library finally got our copy of Spells and I read it straight away! And then read it again! And then played with the spells until finally I decided I had better get it out on the shelves so that some child may find this wonderful book.

In Spells, a frog finds a book and wishes it was so many other things that he tears up the book in his imaginative play. He even wishes that he himself were a handsome prince, yet he was still just a small green frog. Frog then realizes that the book is a book of spells, and he works at putting a page for a spell back together to change himself into a handsome prince with hilarious results. Spells is as quirky and funny as Gravett's other books, and her illustrations are amazingly cool mixed up collages. Not the easiest book to ready during storytime (due to the half sheet pages when frog is working on the spell), but definitely fun to share one on one.
