Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I stumbled on the art of Els Dirickx on a Sunday showcasedat a little market down in Sydney's Southern Highlands. The fascinating artworkcaught my eye and I thought the concept of creating these energetic andemotional scenes from mundane everyday objects in the world would be amazing tochildren. It would seem like magic; like their imaginations coming true. Shecalls it Reverse Art, and it's a special concept. It takes something withpotential energy, and gives it kinetic force. And it feels real because itcomes from something organic and tangible.
So I asked Els if she had ever considered doing a children'spicture book as her art would be a perfect fit. "Oh I'd love to," shereplied. "But I'm no good at writing stories."
So I suggested I would write the story for her and she couldsupply the art. It wasn't long before the book was in production, and as astory began to manifest in my mind, the puzzle pieces fell into placeperfectly. What if a little boy and girl, sister and brother, wanted to showmagic to their dad? What if they could see in the bark and the leaves and therusted old car door the art and they were trying to convince their dad it wasthere? Could they convince their dad there is magic at their farm before thesun sets?
And so the story came to life - Can You See the Magic?
