Anton Can Do Magic (PB)
Anton has a magic hat. A real one. Anton wants to do some magic. He wants to make something disappear. First Anton tries to make a tree vanish, but it's too big. He manages to make a bird disappear, and even his friend Lukas. But where did Lukas go? A charming picture book about the magic of possibility, with simple, humorous text and illustrations. The Swedish-born author/illustrator now works in Germany. Translated into English by Catherine Chidgey.
Ole Konnecke was born in 1961 and spent his childhood in Sweden. He now works as a freelance illustrator in Hamburg, Germany. He has written four books about Anton and has won many awards, including the German Youth Literature award in 2005.
