Review by Gareth Hughes
The magic of Once Upon A Time comes to Titan Books with the first official companion to the smash hit ABC fantasy series, 'Behind The Magic'.
"Must have" sums up this mighty 178 page book, which is filled to the brim with episodes guides, behind the scenes features, cast interviews and some stunning glossy images.
