Author Emily Madill has made it part of her life’s work to create stories that aim to boost children’s confidence. Sam’s Magic Mirror is Madill’s twelfth children’s title. The characters in this chapter style book are inspired by Emily’s nieces and dedicated to girls everywhere. Emily’s motto that she instills in all of her writing is to ‘Believe in Yourself’. Sam’s Magic Mirror has successfully weaved this important virtue throughout the storyline. Madill wanted to create a story that all girls can relate to and says, "We all have something special to bring to the table. This book aims to teach girls to own their uniqueness and to respect and honor their differences."
