My Magic Mirror is a children's fantasy adventure story by eight-year-old author Anushka Bhattacharjee. Nine-year-old Ara is not pleased when she and her five-year-old brother Felice have to move to Toronto, Canada, because of their mother's new job. One day, while exploring the mirror in the basement, the siblings are sucked into it and find themselves in the story of the three little pigs. After Ara relates the story to her brother, Felice proposes an audacious plan to save the pigs from the Big Bad Wolf. Ara and Felice start helping the pigs one by one, only to realize the Big Bad Wolf may not be as bad as they previously thought. They uncover an underlying conspiracy that was making pigs disappear in the small town of Pown. Now, can they return back home?

Anushka Bhattacharjee spins an absorbing yarn that will have kids transported to a magical world full of talking animals. My Magic Mirror is a captivating read filled with eye-catching illustrations that make the story all the more immersive. The characters are vibrant and brimming with life. Their colorful personas make them pop out of the pages and keep you entertained until the end. My Magic Mirror offers plenty of exciting moments while teaching kids the valuable lesson of working together and how everything is not always how it seems. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Any child who loves adventure and fantasy stories will have a wonderful time reading this book. Recommended to kids under the age of twelve.


I really enjoyed Anushka's story. The twist at the end was very unexpected and that's probably what made the book even more enjoyable! I was the 2nd reader for her book ( the 1st reader being her - great grandfather :) ) I love the author's imagination, and have thoroughly enjoyed her new books as well. Looking forward to read more!
