The 'magic window' is a small cardboard frame [similar size to a pair of glasses] around clear red film. The reader looks through this window at the illustrations in the book and hidden secrets are revealed! There are clues in the accompanying verses. In many of the pictures when you look through the window the change of image gives the idea of movement. This book has the original Magic Window, which is written on it and which is quite rare as they are usually lost / damaged and replaced or just not there. Paper covered illustrated boards, laminated with a yellow ground. Brightly illustrated end papers. 22x19 cm. Unpaginated, c. 28pp. Short split top / tail spine. Other than this the boards are remarkably clean and fresh, as is the contents, including the magic window.
