"The Ultimate Spell-Caster" by Mike Barfield (Laurence King Publishing)

Here's a very, very silly book that is a huge amount of fun for your would-be Witches, Warlocks, Wizards and Mages...
Mike Barfield's "The Ultimate Spell-Caster" might not have any illustrations, but it's provided C with hours and hours of fun.

So what on earth is this book about?

As you can probably spot from the cover, the book is divided into 5 horizontal sections which can be messed around with, flipped over and combined to form over 60 million (!) spells to confound and charm your elders.

With a simple incantation or two, you can transform Grandma into a liquorice-scoffing gabblehound, or change Dad into a grumpy old warthog (won't take much of a spell, that one!)

It's such a simple idea but works absolutely wonderfully, the sort of book that's perfect as an extra stocking-filler or halloween treat, so it's out just in the nick of time for both Halloween and Christmas.

"The Ultimate Spell Caster" by Mike Barfield is out now, published  by Laurence King Publishing (kindly supplied for review).
