Review: The Magic Crayon by Amy Sparkes

Magic, witches, trolls, and big bad wolves, this cute story has features of some of the great fairytales.

When Chloe’s brother is cruel to her she finds a magic crayon and seeks revenge! Told in rhyme, we see that Chloe uses her imagination alongside the magic crayon to get her revenge, but then instantly regrets it! We follow her adventure into fairytale wood with her magic crayon by her side to rescue him and set things right again.

Incredibly fun, magical, and mystical, we learn about bravery, forgiveness, and love.

The illustrations are wonderful and I love that they look like they too have been drawn by a magic crayon!

I enjoyed reading this with my three-year-old son, a new family favourite.

Thank you NetGalley and Penguin Random House Children’s Publishers for the e-arc to review.
