    1. Through the Magic Mirror by Anthony Browne is a lovely picture book about a boy called Toby Toby is fed up Fed up of his toys, fed up with his books, he is fed up with everything But he walks through a magic mirror into a fantasy world with fantasy objects and characters Toby cannot believe his eyes He walks through a fantasy world with an invisible man, a dog walking a man and various other things including a poster that comes to life I used this book as a theme for literacy in year 1, narrativ [...]


    2. This book is not what I expected As a fan of Anthony Browne s, I was underwhelmed by the lack of intertextuality per Browne s typical style, but perhaps that has much to do with it being his first book published in 1977 Nonetheless, it is a charming post modern tale of a bored boy, and the astonishing place he visits with the help of his magic mirror The subversive elements demolish that which is normal and include an umbrella standing on a rooftop, a rainbow arcing out of a building, and fish s [...]


    3. This story is about a young boy called Toby He is fed up with everything But this was all about to change when he walked through his bedroom mirror He enters a whole new world of peculiarity where cats are chased by gangs of mice and dogs take their owners for a walk This is a fascinating short story which is accompanied with remarkable illustrations to capture the imagination I would say that this is a suitable story for a year 1 or 2 class and it has much potential for use in the classroom set [...]


    4. In true Anthony brown style there is a lot of very clever inter textual links within this book The implied reader of this book will have to already have knowledge of things such as the type of traffic expect on the road and we take dogs for walks, rather than the other way around However should you look a little deeper, you start to find a lot of links to other books such as Gorilla or The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe.


    5. Another classic book from Anthony Browne one of my favourite authors this book tells the story of a little boy who is bored at home, he doesnt really have anyone to play with and his parents dont seem to be interestedhe goes on a wild adventure through the magic mirror and encounters all sorts at the other side the illustrations are superb in this particular book if a little strange i read this to year two and they loved it i would recommend this book for ks1 and lower ks2.


    6. This is such a surreal book and an amazing visual feast Toby is bored and doesn t know what to do with himself, he tries going downstairs but there s nothing to do, so he goes back upstairs and spots something strange in the mirror Through the Magic Mirror is a small book, around A4 in width and is filled with lots of thick and glossy pages of illustrations and a little text.The story is all about Toby s adventure through the magic mirror and what he sees when he s stepped through The world beyo [...]


    7. If I m honest, I found this book really strange and unusual very difficult to follow for small readers actually interested in the storyline not just the pictures but therefore really exciting and interesting for those just wanting to look at colourful pictures of lots of strange things The story is kind of Narnia esk in that Toby steps through a magic mirror sadly no wardrobe in his house and ends up walking down a street in which the world as he knows it has become quite abstract and surreal Th [...]


    8. Who are you going to believe, me or your lying eyes Groucho MarxIn Anthony Browne s book Through The Magic Mirror , the initial pages indicate loneliness First the reader sees a boy, Toby, sitting bored and alone on top of a couch his parents and pet are apathetic and are somewhat unaware of their surroundings The total dominance of the color white on the page gives the reader a sense of emptiness, and the other colors, the dark green, the dirty yellow, and Toby s multicolored vest, all clash an [...]


    9. Through the Magic Mirror by Anthony Browne comically outlines the story of a young boy named Toby who, bored with everything in his life, takes a trip through his mirror to a very different and strange world where gangs of mice chase cats and dogs walk their owners I have read many of Browne s picturebooks before, and like many of them, there are many links within the text in this book that make it so interesting The plot of this story relies on readers to already have a common knowledge of how [...]


    10. This book tells the story of a bored boy who is so sick of everyday things He does not have fun with his toys or anything any He decides to follow his reflection in a glass mirror into an imaginary world This book was very different because there is no words You have to use your imagination to follow the story and nothing truly exciting happens until the end Throughout most of the boys adventure he goes unnoticed in his new world and when he does it makes for a exciting story The images in the [...]


    11. I absolutely loved the plot line in this story What I saw when I read it was boy who no longer wants to enjoy what the world tells him that he should enjoy, like his toys and games He desires adventure in life something that no one has done before, so he takes a risk and follows is reflection into the mirror this part I liked a lot because it somewhat reminded me of Narnia The best part about it is that you get all of this just from the emotions that the illustrator draws in the pictures There [...]


    12. What I enjoyed a lot about this book is the back cover From the front, it looks like a boy stepping into a mirror, and on the back is the reverse world that the boy is stepping into which includes all of the letters of the title backwards This book was intriguing and fun to look at and see what the reverse world within a mirror would be like The illustrations help to tell the story in an interesting way The first page helps us to zero in on the main character alone in a chair What I noticed most [...]


    13. So I thought this book was awesome I think it may have something to do with the fact that I am currently reading the Narnia series so my mind when in all sort of different directions for the little boy I loved how the author made it so that the person looking at the pictures had to use their imagination I would use this book as a creative writing tool and have my students interpret what they think happened I think the book can be used in many different ways in a curriculum based on the content o [...]


    14. This is a great picture book about a young boy named Toby Toby is fed up, he is fed up with everything Toby cannot stand the same old same old things like his toys, games, and books Until one day Toby steps through the magic mirror until a surreal life where he cannot believe his eyes everything is backwards, mice are chasing cats, and dogs walk the humans everything is extremely out of place and weird Toby really received that adventure that he was searching for when her walked into that mirror [...]


    15. hrough the Magic Mirror by Anthony Browne is a book which could inspire children to unleash their imaginations and let their creativity go wild It is about a very bored little boy who travels through his mirror into a surreal world and back I found the story was written in a way that reflected the little boys boredom and the illustrations told the story of the surreal, wild experience he had I am not sure if it can be compared to a dream or a nightmare I would suggest this book to be suitable fo [...]


    16. Through the magic mirror a portrait style book The cover is very bright and uses cooler colors in the background The pictures are full bleed but do not always take up the full page There is a lot of white surrounding most of the pictures The text for this story is located on the bottom of each page and is in a very bland, non exciting times new roman font The book has all sorts of points of view, mostly foreground but also birds eye The pictures do have a realistic look to them and are colored m [...]


    17. In this home away home adventure, Toby leaves dull life for a twisted new land The book s illustrations have white or no boarders and are used to enhance the text Illustrations are set in the center of the page with white boarders, are double spreads to show the setting, or two bordered pictures on one page to show sequence The magic mirror Toby finds teaches him to enjoy what he has back home and makes hime long for his old life that he once thought of as dull and boring The surrealist illustra [...]


    18. In this other postmodern picture book by anthony browne, it tells the story of a bored little boy who follows his reflection in a glass mirror into an imaginary world I thought this book was interesting because there is no dialogue throughout the book It is only at the end when something extremely exciting happens, which is when the boy gets noticed in his alternate world I liked this book because it is a good example of a picture book where the pictures really tell the story, not the text


    19. Toby is bored, and fed up with his life, until he steps through a mirror and finds himself in a similar but strange world The world is back to front e.g mice chase a cat The sentences are kept short so it is easy to read and the pictures are silly and engaging This book leaves you with lots of questions that you could ask children and then lead on to children writing their own versions of the story I think this would be a great book to use as a literacy project from reception upwards.


    20. The first thing that I noticed when reading this book was how it has a square orientation This caught my eye first because most books I read have vertical or horizontal orientation Through The Magic Mirror starts of with red end pages Throughout the book there is a mixture of full bleed, double full bleed, and framed illustrations I really enjoyed this book because it made me feel like I was traveling through the magic mirror with Toby.


    21. When reading through this book, it takes you through the imagination of a child The book is different from the normal view of society, for example it will have mice chasing a cat, or men painting the sky instead of a fence It is a good book to test a child s imagination and a fun read for families Also the illustrations are detailed and captivating I would recommend this book for any child who is a beginner reader.


    22. One ordinary day, a bored little boy follows his reflection though the mirror into a surreal alternate world.There is an interesting feeling of silence in this book there is no conversation only at the end does anyone in the mirror world seem to notice the boy and no sounds are described The text is ancillary to the illustrations and would not make sense read aloud to some one who wasn t looking at the pictures.


    23. This book does not have words and therefore is great for younger children They get to use their imagination and decided what is happening They can chose why the boy is bored and tell you their ideas The pictures show toys and things that children can relate to I would definitely recommend this to children of all ages to help inspire them.


    24. This book was wonderful I enjoyed how Anthony Browne made the illustrations appear as though the readers had to use their own imaginations You could use this book for many classroom activities, for example you could have your students create their own illustration, and then the teacher would have to you use her his own imagination to interpret the images I definitely recommend this book.


    25. The text if far quiet than the surrealist illustrations would suggest A young boy escapes boredom through a magic mirror No one asks him when to go or return His parents do not even notice his absence Upon his return home, a smile finds his face in the mirror s reflection A good book for stimulating abstract thought for those outside the box.


    26. I m having an Anthony Browne morning This is another great story for talking about imagination gorgeously illustrated and a great starting point for children s own imaginative journeys.


    27. Through the Magic Mirror the perfect partner book for Coraline by Neil Gaiman what happens when a young boy walks through a magic mirror into an alternate reality Some fascinating visual effects and ideas


    28. This book was cute, uses your imagination in the reading of the story I also like how the book uses an ordinary day to explain what is happening in the day It s so true how kids get bored with daily things and have to invent to keep occupied.


    29. A boy is bored and finds himself stepping through a magic mirror in his house A bizarre world of opposites and illusions entertains him on the other side He s not bored any This would make a fun writing prompt idea what s on the other side of YOUR magic mirror


    30. i loved the book it was so funny when the dog took the man for a walk and when the animals from the poster came out and Toby ran away from the lion.
