In Magic Land, the Fairy Trees serve as mirrors to Frida and help the cat to see and love herself more deeply, and to assist her in expressing her own authentic beauty through art. Frida returns to the garden where the wise spider divulges the true meaning of 47. Perturbed that the spider continues to call her Grasshopper, Frida threatens to eat him.
Many of the illustrations in the book utilize innovative photographic techniques, shooting photos through filters and capturing distorted reflections off of metal.
Through the eyes of a cat, readers get a humorous glimpse into how changing our perceptions can help us find a deeper connection with the earth and those around us, and to nurture greater compassion and love within ourselves. Ages 12 and up.

You then know that the light within your own heart is always true and bright, as is the Heart Light that also shines within every living being."
