Biased Review: A Magpie Called Will by Peter Rondel  
I am a lucky person. As editor of IFWG Publishing I can be involved in great projects, and I have to say that it is wonderful to be involved in
children's books - especially if they are illustrated.

A Magpie Called Will is about a young boy, playing in his backyard, who suddenly is confronted by a magpie that talks. But that is just the beginning. I will say no more or I will give away a fantastical plot.

This is a very well written book by Western Australian author, Peter Rondel (I had the pleasure of previously reading top notch short
stories by him), and illustrator Frances Hutt from New Zealand - equally talented in her domain.

I would heartily recommend this to early readers - say, 8 to 12 years.

This deserves 5 stars.
