We were sent Magic Pie by Robyn Embrey to review* last week. This beautifully rhyming, magical adventure is a lovely book for children. Published by Pegasus and available on Amazon. We always enjoy reviewing children’s books like this, that just flows so well.
Magic pie is all about a little boy named Olly who tries to make a magic pie. He tries but with no luck. His mum finds him and explains real magic lies in a box of pixie dust beneath her bed. Olly embarks on a magical adventure where he meets a genie, a rabbit and fairy.
Olly just wants to make Magic
One to make
himmagic, one to make him fly.
But he might just find where
realmagic lies instead,
With a box of pixie dust, beneath his mummy’s bed.Magic Pie – Robyn Embrey
We love reading this book and have already read it a few times. Its rhythm flows beautifully making it fun to read aloud. From the start, the girls listened intensely to Olly’s magical adventure. You could see they really enjoyed it throughout.
Both my girls have tried to make magic potions before, as have most children. Mixing all kinds of ingredients in little pots so I found Olly’s magic pie making quite amusing.
As reviewers, we also received some colouring pages, bookmarks and pixie dust, which the girls really loved! Magic Pie is already a favourite read for the girls and I can really see why. Olly has so much fun on his magical journey. When he returns, he knows that one day he’ll show his sister the magic that lies beneath mummy’s bed too. We would love to see more children’s books by Robyn Embrey as we thoroughly enjoyed this one!
About The Author
This is Robyn Embrey’s first Children’s book she has published. I have followed her on twitter for a while and know she has worked hard to create this fantastic children’s book. Below is a short ‘about me’ from Robyn herself.
MyChildren live in a world only confined to the limits of their imaginations. With so much inspiration around me in day to day life, I started to write down their adventures. With the support of my long-suffering husband, my faithful friends and a little creativity, Magic Pie and other stories started to keep me awake at night. The only way to get some sleep was to write them down
Have you heard of or read Magic Pie yet?
