Merlina and the Magic Spell
by Daniela Drescher
Age Range: Under_5
The little sorceress Merlina and her friend Igor the dragon are busy cooking fruits gathered from their garden and making jam and juice to keep throughout the winter months. When Igor stands on a sharp thorn he is not keen for Merlina to pull it out so she has to find the right spell to make it disappear. After several unsuccessful attempts with some unsual results the thorn still remains in poor Igor’s foot. That is, until he tries a tasty-looking red chilli pepper which gives him quite a shock!
Daniela Drescher brings the charming world of Merlina and her attempts at magic to life with her beautiful, delicate illustrations. Each page is packed with colourful detail which children will enjoy time and time again.
