Paint with Magic is a comical rhyming tale of an outrageous octopus, an aspiring artist and a multitude of beautiful sea creatures that come to life. When a child paints an octopus with magic paints, the octopus comes to life, keen to offer plenty of advice on how the painting should be done! As the story and painting unfold, all the marine animals join in the fun … until the paint dries. Will it be the best painting ever?
