About this product
- DescriptionCatriona must write her name on all her thank you tes before she's allowed to play with her birthday presents. It's going to take forever! Unless...She puts her coloured pencils and a sprinkling of magical ingredients into a big pot. Then she says the magic word. But the pencils start writing on walls, scribbling on the table, and doodling on the fridge! Can Catriona stop the magical mayhem? This is a hilarious new picture book from Lari Don, author of The Big Bottom Hunt and Orange Juice Peas!, vibrantly illustrated by Claire Keay, about the consequences of taking shortcuts, and the power of the magic word.
