Child reading Letters from Fairyland by The Magic Ink Pot

About us

Dip into The Magic Ink Pot...

The Magic Ink Pot is a tiny independent publisher of children's fiction with a difference. Our stories come with a sprinkle of magic, designed to enchant bookworms and reluctant readers alike.

In this digital age, our Letters from Fairyland give children the old-fashioned excitement of receiving a mysterious letter through the post. Each letter is addressed to its young recipient from a different fairy-tale character and each contains a gently humorous and charming story aimed at both boys and girls. Written for ages 4-8, our letters are intended to be read aloud to the younger of the bunch and enjoyed independently by more confident readers. A subscription to Letters from Fairyland makes the perfect meaningful children's gift and is full of warmth and fun.

We have many more spellbinding ideas simmering away at The Magic Ink Pot, so look out for new products in the near future!

More about our founder

Founder Judith Katz created The Magic Ink Pot on the back of a 15 year career teaching Latin, Greek, classical civilisation, philosophy and English (phew!), so she knows her Aesop's Fables from her Arabian Nights.

Once upon a time, Judith's sparky, energetic younger daughter needed a little encouragement to get stuck into reading for pleasure. Judith drew on warm childhood memories, her library of folktales, myths and legends and her experience as a teacher to come up with ways to charm her little girl into reading and being read to. When Judith's elder daughter - a child with a twenty-a-day book habit - was also captivated, Judith knew her ideas would have wider appeal. She started to write for friends and family, and not long afterwards The Magic Ink Pot was born.
