When Ibby is sent to stay with her aunt, she discovers her two troublesome boy cousins, Francis and Alex, playing with an old box of magic tricks they found in the attic.
Ibby is sure that magic isn’t real – until she sees Francis sitting at the bottom of the biscuit tin, magically miniaturized by Alex. After that, nothing is what it seems.
A joyful, quirky tale about real magic and the magic of family life and friendships.
Re-issue of Heather Dyer's 2007 classic.
