Anton Can Do Magic by Ole Könnecke, ISBN 9781877467639, Gecko Press
Reviewed by Matilda, 7, WA
Anton is a boy with a hat that he thinks helps him be magic. He tries to make things disappear. Whenever he does magic, he wiggles his hands and the hat falls over his eyes and he can’t see what’s happening, so he thinks he’s done something magic.
Something interesting about the illustrations is that they use mostly hot colours like red, orange and yellow and reddy-orange. Only the bird is not orangey-red.
Can Anton really do magic? You will have to read this picture book to find out.
I would recommend this book to 5 to 8 year olds because it’s funny and it made me laugh.
