Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The Great Magician of the World is an explosion of stylized illustrations and color. While Fran Nuno's words conjure magical ideas, illustrator Enrique Quevedo's artwork conjures pure wonder. Readers will spend far more time examining the images than the words, but the words are what ties everything together." —www.CrackingTheCover.com
