Magic Mirror

Discover the magical introductory Scratch project from Cool Scratch Projects in Easy Steps by Sean McManus

About this project

Magic Mirror is an introductory project to get you started with Scratch. This is a comic twist on the 'going for a walk' Scratch project that starts many Scratch books (including Scratch Programming in Easy Steps), featuring a Magic Mirror that distorts the cat's reflection as it walks past. This project shows you how to use the Paint Editor and introduces some ideas that are used in later projects in the book, so it's a great starting point for readers of all levels.
