Spells, Paperback
4.5 out of 5 (2 ratings)


A hopeful little frog tries to turn himself into a handsome prince by piecing together the torn pages of a spell book.

There's just one problem - although Frog knows all about magical spells, spelling is another matter ...There are lots of laugh-out-loud moments to share in this wonderful and inventive story.

Have fun flipping the mix-and-match pages to follow Frog as he struggles through a host of jumbled spell combinations and extraordinary guises (Rabbit?

Fabbit?! Prabbit!?!) in search of his fairytale ending.

Review by

A small green frog has bright big dreams. He imagines himself as all sorts of things; a pirate sailing in a boat out on the seven seas, a prince with a beautiful princess living in a grand castle. But no matter how much he imagines, he is still a small green frog.One day this small green frog found a tattered old book. The small green frog had hoped for a story, possibly something about pirates, or boats, or princes, or castles. But it was nothing like that, for this was not a story book at all. It was in fact a book of spells.At first the small green frog was disappointed, but then he decided to use the book of spells to transform himself in a handsome prince. However the book of spells was badly torn, and in his attempt to transform into a prince he becomes many other muddled and mixed-up animals.Spells is a beautiful book full of missed-match fun to share with someone special. Emily Gravett delivers a brilliantly illustrated and delightful story. An amusing and entertaining read everyone can enjoy.

Wonderful fantasy book on a frog who wants to become a prince, but only has a spell book. Has creative pages, would be good for on your own reading so students can see the small print/ experience turning the pages.
