"Delightful" Purchased on Mighty Ape

Whether you are a Margaret Mahy fan or not you will be charmed by this delightful DVD. Delightful in that Margaret is seen reading and playing with her grand-daughters and they obviously adore each others company. She also reads some of her stories, with the pictures which are a vital part of her story telling for young ones and older ones alike.


Margaret Mahy's Rumbus­tifications 2, a Magical Journey Into The Enchanting World of NZ's Iconic Author.

Margaret Mahy was famous for reading her work to children, but the enchantment of those readings has never been recorded and made available – until now.

Imagine a world where your favourite author read your favourite stories to you. A world where your most treasured characters came to life as the stories were read aloud. In this magical and enchanting series, the beauty and legacy of children’s author Margaret Mahy comes vividly to life, as never before.

"Well, in my head I hear my work a certain way and it would be gratifying to have my own interpretations recorded for others”. -Margaret Mahy-

Sitting with her grandchildren, Margaret reads some of her most famous works. Blending animation and imagination, the characters in these tales and poems from Mahy spring to life and breathe life into her words and tales, in front of you. From the likes of Down the Back of the Chair, to Bubble Trouble, the stories are delightful and will have audiences of all ages captivated.

Margaret Mahy's Rumbus­tifications is a seamless mix of live action and post-production animation and sound design. This collection preserves the creative legacy and honours the magical memory of one of New Zealand's most well-renowned writers for children and families now and generations to come.
