The Little Crooked Bookshelf on #ReviewsDay

Main Street Magic
by Ingela P Arrhenius

(This week's #ReviewsDay pick is from cottager Jamie Michalak.)

What it's all about...
On this Main Street, nothing is as it seems. Kids can explore more than 30 lift-the-flaps and pop-ups to discover lots of strange surprises!

Why I love it...
The striking, graphic art is enormously appealing, and the mini mysteries illustrated on each page double as fun story starters. Who is peeking out of the hole in the bakery wall?

Favorite line...
Elephants never forget eternal love! 

Sample illustration...
From MAIN STREET MAGIC by Ingela P. Arrhenius. Copyright 2017 Chronicle Books.

What's the kid-appeal?
The unexpected details hiding under the flaps will keep little ones guessing until the grand finale -- a magical circus.

What's the grownup appeal?
The illustrations stir the imagination. Grown-ups can ask children to offer up their own explanations as to what's happening on Main Street.

Where to find/buy Main Street Magic!
Indie Booksellers
Barnes & Noble

Or at a school or library near you!
