Spellbound is a fresh, funny twist on new-sibling relationships and the magic of love.
Willow’s world is perfectly magical, until Rowan is born. When her new baby brother seems to enchant everyone he meets, Willow becomes convinced he is an actual, real-life wizard. Can Willow put a stop to his hocus pocus, or is Rowan’s magic too powerful to resist?

We absolutely adored this book as it explains what can happen when a new baby joins a family who already has a little one in charge. 😉 The magic that a little baby brings into a home is real and it does seem to take everyone by storm. This is why we loved how this story came together so beautifully.
For this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give Spellbound 5 wands out of 5! We love how fun it was to read and the illustrations are so captivating! It had us hooked and intrigued from beginning to end. Our Nikki is an only child but she couldn’t help but relate to the book when she had to welcome new baby cousins into the family. I too related to the book as I looked back on my own childhood and had to embrace my sister’s entrance into the world (love ya sis!).
Not only did we love reading this book but our puppy, Tyson, got into the book too! Therefore, it got the hand and paw stamp from my family. 🙂
This book felt magical. Willow is very funny and I understood how she felt because I too have felt that way when a new baby comes into the family. But just like Willow I see that love can always be shared. – Nikki, Age 7
