The Secret Magicks of Maine
This Secret Magicks of Maine written by Matt Watier, a Maine native is a collection of 15 new fairy tales with lush full color paintings and detail that explore Maine’s seasonal changes, strange sounds, mysterious lights, and beautiful colors and introduces children to new mythical creatures that call Maine home.
Each page of this children’s picture book illustrates and describes the wonders of Maine that have captured children’s imagination throughout the ages and answers their questions like: “Why are blueberries blue?”, “Why does the lake make loud sounds in the winter?”, and “How do seashells get the sound of the ocean in them?” By following the seasons (including the infamous Maine mud season) this beautifully illustrated fantasy book captures the childlike wonder of all that is magical about the state of Maine.
Playing in the shadowy mud of the forest, over the surface of the cold Atlantic Ocean, and under the wildflowers in its fields, you will find Maine’s magical world. This guide and its award winning illustrations will encourage you and your children to wonder about the mysteries behind Maine’s seasons, its oceans, and its natural beauty.
