Recipe for Magic Potion by Jack Henseleit

$25.00 Inc GST

A powerfully delightful picture book about childhood play and the enduring magic of our natural world.

To make a magic potion, you will need these things:
A friend (or two or three)
A bucket or a pot
Or a hole
And – ingredients.

At first glance this story could be seen as a set of instructions on how to brew a magic potion, the ingredients of which are familiar – mud, a leaf, some sand. But as the story unfolds, the two children at the heart of this story let their imaginations run wild as they take the reader on a glorious, lyrical journey outside.
