A magpie who steals bright and shiny things is the perfect foil for Slater’s wonderfully bright and shiny collage illustrations. Her artwork sings and dazzles throughout the book as Magnus the magpie makes off with everything from ‘a dancing diva’s shimmering shoe’ to ‘Her Majesty’s most magnificent emerald egg cup’. When he heads for the moon, the brightest thing of all, he is in for a disappointment: it’s dull and gray. But the earth from the moon is beautiful, and Magnus heads home joyfully — only to find a lady magpie in his tree. He is a reformed character and returns all the stolen goods. Well… almost all. This quite special picture book will appeal for the story, but most of all for the outstanding illustrations.
