By Alice Kuipers & Illustrated by Diana Toledano
Now in paperback-book two of the spunky and clever Polly Diamond series, which celebrates the (literal) magic of writing.
Polly and her magic book, Spell, have all kinds of adventures together because whatever Polly writes in Spell comes true! But when Polly and Spell join forces to make the school fair super spectacular, they quickly discover that what you write and what you mean are not always the same.
Alice Kuipers is the author of 13 books for young adults and children. Her books have been published in 34 countries and have won lots of awards.
