Can You Guess?

by Emma Middleton, illustrated by Connah Brecon

I am the Magic Mazeldore; my bag is big and wide.
You’ll never guess the creatures I have safely tucked inside.

Which animal swings from tree to tree? And what flying creature starts life as a crawly caterpillar?

Guess which animals the tricky wizard is describing in this delightfully interactive book perfect for energetic young readers.
