Evie is settling into her new home. The day she starts her new school, she receives a gift from Grandma Iris in Jamaica - a beautiful bracelet with a message. 'Have a magical time!' Evie is amazed when she understands what the seagulls and the animals at the city farm are saying. She gradually realises this all started when she put on the bracelet from Grandma Iris. She hopes her magic ability will keep the sprites at bay during the children's paper chase and she hopes to help the silver unicorn out of his trouble. This is a warm-hearted story with lovely illustrations. It is ideal for children reading on their own or reading together.
