Glitter at the ready, this book needs you! Princess Sapphire and Emerald the Witch live in the mixed-up land of Mixtopia, where everything is just a little bit odd...let's face it, perfect princesses and scruffy witches are not usually best friends. Sapphire's dress design is chosen for a Fashion Show and she wants her best friend there for her big day...Then Emerald's pet toad, Boris, causes quite a mix-up and fashion fiasco! Can the girls sort the mix-up on their own? No, they can't! They need you to finish the illustrations and make the party of the year happen. Doodle, design and draw while you read and make the Fashion Show the event of the season!
