Abigail Wheatley joined Usborne Publishing in 2002 after completing a doctorate on medieval castles. She's still writing books about castles, but has branched out into areas such as science, art and cookery. She lives in a little book-filled house in Kent, with views of a real castle from her bedroom window.
Usborne Editor, Abigail Wheatley, shares her editor's pick of the month:
"Simply add water to bring garden plants and creatures magically to life – from a buzzing bumble bee to a tall tulip. This book is the first in the new ‘First Magic Painting’ series – with big, bold shapes designed to appeal to younger children and help them learn brush control, and simple text to help them identify the familiar garden favourites. As with our other Magic Painting books, it comes with a quality brush and a laminated back page you can use to stop the water seeping through to the pages below. Little children will love dipping the brush into water and sweeping it across the simple black and white designs, to see vibrant colours magically appear".
9780794551308UsborneFilled with simple, stylish images of popular garden flowers, bugs and other wildlife. Just brush water over the bold black and white designs to watch them burst into vibrant color.https://usborne.com/media/catalog/product/cache/29b1c625a6a034d41d27bd6a2f264776/9/7/9780794551308_cover_image.jpghttps://usborne.com/us/first-magic-painting-garden-97807945513089780794551308
