MAGICAL MIX-UPS is a companion series to the highly successful MEGA MASH-UPS. These books once again combine great stories with the opportunity for readers to add to the illustrations by award-winning illustrator Leigh Hodgkinson. There’s a mix-up in Fairyland and it needs to be fixed by Emerald (a friendly witch) and Princess Sapphire, so get your colored pencils and glitter pens at the ready and start reading and doodling: after all, there’s a party to plan!

Editor reviews

I would've loved this book as a child! Not only is it a story involving princesses, castles, witches, and toads, every page is a chance to explore the artist inside every child. This is interactive reading at its best. Arm yourself with glitter pens, crayons, colored pencils, bits of fabric, lace, and buttons, some glue and an active imagination, and you're ready to read this book. Each page invites the reader to color in the characters, sketch parts of the story, and even write captions for what you think the character is thinking/feeling about that part of the story. This is hours of fun in one little book. I highly recommend it.
