As the title suggests this is the story of a Magical Do-Nothing Day. A lovely reminder of the adventures that await us in nature. Perfect for anyone - child in age or at heart - who gets caught up in video-games and fighting martians from their couch, and forgets about the magic there is to discover outside. — From Amy's Picks
