The Magic! Collection Box Set

by Maggie Hutchings and illustrated by Cheryl Orsini

Feel the magic with best friends Lena and Luka as they learn there’s nothing that can’t be solved by a little bit of hope and a big wish.

In this enchanting collection of stories, we watch as:

Lena looks for something secret and special to make Luka feel better …

Luka searches for something splashy and sparkly to help Lena conquer her fears …

Lena and Luka seek something scaly and wide-winged so they can visit their friend …

And the girls dream of something fluttery and floaty to help send Luka’s new little sister off to sleep.

About the Author

Maggie Hutchings is a counsellor, family-dispute mediator, writer and artist who spends her weekends covered in paint and scribbling lists that are never completed.

She is a famously mad aunt, nanna and mother who talks to herself out loud and falls over a lot in the garden at her house in northern New South Wales.

Maggie writes stories with heart and soul for children and adults that encourage kindness, hope and resilience.
