Magic painting book

A magic painting book like you’ve never seen before, with wonderful vibrant colours. Children will be amazed when they use the special brush to paint water over the illustrations and a rainbow of colours is magically revealed. Each page is full of beautiful, black and white illustrations, from butterflies and birds to a grand castle and a jungle full of tigers, which are transformed into colour when children carefully paint water onto the pictures. Includes a laminated flap to place behind painting to stop paint seeping through to next page and ensure perfect results.
