For her birthday, Eva is given a very special present - a box of tricks! She soon discovers that she is a master magician and for her first trick conjures up a rather large pet from within... Monty the polar bear.

With her new friend she produces rabbits from hats, and a magical party with delicious food, the best musicians and lots of dancing. But when her guests finally begin to tire, Eva clicks her fingers and everything vanishes...

... Well, not quite everything.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Really knocked my socks off . . . it's rare to see a picture book so well-executed by a first-time author/illustrator . . . A perfect picture book. The text and illustrations are balanced perfectly, and the story feels fresh -- Alison Morris * Publishers Weekly *
Katie Cleminson is a notable new talent in children's picture books, judging by her debut, Box of Tricks . . . Cleminson draws friendly creatures with a free, confident inky line . . . and tells a story of few words, but with surprises -- Nicolette Jones * The Sunday Times *
The musical rabbits lure you into this explosion of colour and action, as they dance their way across the opening pages. It's largely the contrasts that make this story one to remember. Black, white and grey are used to magical effect when the riot of red and blue is added to the background * Child Education *
Cleminson's illustrations are whimsical, elegant and charming . . . As an illustrator, Cleminson has a distinctive and wonderful talent * The Truth About Books *
Cleminson won the Best Emerging Illustrator 2009 for this book, and I can understand why! This book really is magical, and the illustrations are superb. The rabbits really do seem to dance across the page! Cleminson uses colour to brilliant effect * My Child *
