Here you'll find a magic book
Where all's not what it seems.
For when you turn each object round
The unexpected will be seen.

See the raccoon hiding in a magic cauldron? The owl pretending to be a clock? The lion masquerading as a flower? A rabbit hiding in a hot-air balloon? Kids will love working magic with just a few simple turns—and a few rhyming verses—that transform everyday objects into familiar creatures. Simple manipulations for little hands make this a literal page turner.
