Today I’m so excited to show you some lovely book post that came through my letterbox only a week ago (very late indeed was my postman! 😮 ) from the lovely people at Piccadllly Press who publish children’s books which are so amazing.  I am really excited for this title as I read an extract of it on Readers Frist and really enjoyed it, and then I was offered the chance to get my own copy and I’m just so excited because I really enjoy magic (the magic tricks kind in this case) and have to say I am interested to see what will happen to the character in this book which I’m sure is modelled on the author himself.  Let’s take a look at what came in the post! 🙂 …

Max Magic by Stephen Mulhern & Tom Easton – Max Mullers loves doing magic tricks – and one day he’ll be the greatest magician in the world: MAX THE MAGNIFICENT!
But first he’s got to figure out how to get Bottley the Bully off his back AND save Dad’s market stall from East End meanies the Crayfish Twins.  Not even his slickest tricks can help him!
Then Max discovers a rather unusual chest at Gran’s antique shop and all of a sudden…ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!


Doesn’t the blurb of this book sound brilliant, and I’m a bit of a fan of Stephen Mulhern so I’m definitely going to enjoy reading this. 🙂  You may have spotted it from the other pictures but if you haven’t, just check out an additional feature of this first print run of this book, not sure if additional print runs will all have this, but look at those blue sprayed edges😍!…
