Reviews

"Watercolor combine funny touches (the decor of a the Magician's room reveals him to be a mischievous child wizard) with softly colored, nicely detailed animals and landscapes."
-Booklist

"Detailed watercolors, many of them full-bleed, double-page spreads, feature a large cast of mixed-up animals, an atmospheric forest, and a rather timid magician. Children will have fun figuring out whose misplaced body parts belong to whom, and the endpapers offer clues to Macrobius's bewitchment."
-Kirkus Reviews

"This amusing little tale is sure to please any young person who has a fondness for magic and pranks. Delicate watercolour and pencil drawings beautifully capture the personalities of the animals and the forest environment that they live in."
-Through the Looking Glass Children's Book Review

"The rich and colorful, detailed pictures will keep the readers' and listeners' attention."
-Children's Book Review Service, Inc.
