Arabella is a beloved only child who has everything until her brother, Avery, arrives. While she loves him, it’s sometimes hard to like him.

Oops! Can she get him back? Arabella and the Magic Pencil will appeal to any child with a new sibling and to caregivers who are supporting changing family dynamics.

The Burgeoning Bookshelf reviews”
Arabella and the Magic Pencil is a charming story filled with magic and wonder to enhance a child’s imagination. The story includes words to extend the child’s vocabulary and Dot was quick to ask the meaning of ‘mayhem’ and ‘acoustics’. Alliteration is used at times to give a fun rhythm to the story; Dainty dolls dined, Pretty princesses paraded.” Click here to read more
