¨Sacha Cotter´s use of language is highly imaginative and rolls off the tongue, making this a delightful read aloud. Josh Morgan´s quirky, vibrant illustrations provide the perfect accompaniment to the text. The Marble Maker is a rare gem that is certain to reach a wide audience and will no doubt inspire many young inventors and potion makers. Highly recommended.¨
