      Eve, a budding young magician, longs to master the dragon-conjuring spell. Her first attempts produce comic results-whimsical hybrid creatures-but no dragon. Eve keeps trying, helped by the extraordinary features of her magic book-pages appear and disappear and can be connected in different ways; conjured animals can be hidden in the book and summoned just by closing and opening the book the right way The book works forward or backward in a never-ending circle and once Eve discovers the correct words to a spell, they appear magically. The creator of The Rainbow Fish has crafted a truly remarkable book that allows youngsters to work magic along with Eve, manipulating the pages to create six different books, conjuring unusual creatures, and finding the dragon spell to create a fantastic, fire-breathing dragon.
