Magic - Mirelle Ortega
This magical picture book tells the author's own story of growing up on her family’s pineapple farm in Mexico. Magic isn’t good or bad, it just is. Sometimes it gives, sometimes it takes. Sometimes life blossoms, sometimes it wilts. The book speaks about change and transformation of all kinds: what we can’t control, such as natural disasters and loss, and what we can. Magic can transform dirt into pineapples, seeds into trees, wool into blankets, words into stories, blank pages into pictures… a story into a picture book.
