Paint with Magic is a comical rhyming tale of an outrageous octopus, an aspiring artist and a multitude of beautiful sea creatures that come to life.

When a child paints an octopus with magic paints, the octopus comes to life, keen to offer plenty of advice on how the painting should be done! As the story and painting unfold, all the marine animals join in the fun … until the paint dries. Will it be the best painting ever?

  1. Paint with Magic was published first as a poem by The School Magazine in 2010 (reprinted in 2016),and illustrated by David Legge. Prior to publication with The School Magazine, Paint with Magic placed third in the Picture Books-Primary School Category of the 2007 Brisbane Writers Festival CYA Conference, Writing & Illustrating Competition!

  2. Explore the joys of painting and creating in this charming, rhyming picture book from Sandi Wootan and Pat Kan.

  3. This is a fun and joyful story about creativity and imagination. With delightful and colourful illustrations, each page is eye-catching and fun to explore. The characters are big, bold and bright, and I love that kids can use the book as an easy reference to create their own illustrations.

  4. The simple rhyming text flows beautifully throughout the story, and with heaps of suspenseful page turns, it’s also great to read to a crowd.

  5. I love books that spark creativity in kids, and this is definitely one of them. I can see kids running off to create their own magical paintings immediately after hearing this story and playing pretend with their own magic paintbrushes.

  6. For kids who love to create, and for those who maybe just need a little inspiration, Paint with Magic is a magical picture book and a whole lot of fun.
