Description

A compelling, magical picture book with "startlingly beautiful words and pictures."* A book to spur imagination and exploring and a break from boredom or screen time.

"True magic is found in the simple but transformative act of experiencing nature." (starred review from Booklist)

All I want to do on a rainy day like today is play my game. My mom says it's a waste of time, but without my game, nothing is fun On the other hand, maybe I'm wrong about that...

While reading On a Magical Do-Nothing Day, one gets the sense that the illustrator became lost in her drawings, and as a reader, you will want to do the same. Perfect for fans of picture books by Julie Morstad, Carson Ellis, Jon Klassen, and Tomi Ungerer.

From the creator of The Wonderful Fluffy Little Squishy and A Lion in Paris "Hands down, Beatrice Alemagna is my favorite contemporary illustrator," said the Caldecott Honor-winning illustrator of Last Stop on Market Street, Christian Robinson.
