Join Molly on her second magical adventure as she visits the enchanted dressing-up wardrobe in her Granny’s house. There are so many costumes to choose from in her magic dressing-up wardrobe.

Today she’s going to be . . . a mermaid! With a whizz and a pop and a shower of stars, Molly dives below the sea and soon finds herself on a mission: she must race to save the mermaids’ shipwreck from some pesky sharks!

This rhyming adventure full of magic is brought to life with bright, eye-popping artwork from Garry Parsons, illustrator of the bestselling Dinosaur That Pooped series.

Review new 2021

Molly has a magic place where she likes to play, her grannies wardrobe. Once afternoon she spots a mermaid costume hanging in the wardrobe, so she puts it on and counts to three and waited for her adventure to begin.

She soon found herself under the sea and meeting with other mermaids in an old shipwreck, however, it’s not long before some big sharks arrive and declare that the shipwreck is theirs and that the mermaids need to move to somewhere else.

Molly thinks the sharks are mean and comes up with a plan. She offers the sharks the option of racing the mermaids, the winner gets to keep the shipwreck for themselves. Just how are the mermaids going to win against the fast sharks though?

This is the second book in ‘Molly’s Magic Wardrobe’ series, yet the first I have read. On opening the book the bright, colourful, full-page illustrations leaped out at me. They are simply divine and I can see lots of children enjoying them.

The story of a magic wardrobe taking a young girl on an adventure to different places reminded me a little of The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe crossed with Mr. Benn. I am sure this will get lots of children’s imaginations working and hoping that their grandparents have a magic wardrobe too.

I think Molly’s Magic Wardrobe is simply beautiful. It has a great story within the pages about kindness and I can see it being a real hit with little children. It would make a fantastic class read as well as a bedtime story.
