This was bought on a whim, after my daughter mentioned 'magical' cards used at school in English lessons. They were given to her for her 10th birthday, and she pronounced them the 'best present ever'. The pictures are beautiful, and act as inspiration for imaginative minds. She loves writing stories, and these Storyworld cards have stimulated even more writing. I really recommend them; they make a wonderful present, and are destined to be treasured for the future as well.
