Would you like to meet the Slow Ogre, who takes three days to just eat his breakfast, or a boy called Tom who finds a dinosaur in his shed, making a noise like a volcano erupting in a pillar-box? There is also a juggling dog, a flying king, a magical mirror and a baby made only of snow . . .
They are all here among the magic and mystery, the sadness and silliness of these adventures by Terry Jones that incorporate bizarre characters (dragons and dinosaurs, mermaids and monsters) with a special blend of fantasy, morality and humour to produce an irresistible collection of tales that will be enjoyed over and over again.
In this extraordinary world of surreal lands and eccentric characters absolutely anything can happen - and usually does.
