Synopsis

Tollins: Explosive Tales for Children by Conn Iggulden

Conn Iggulden on the difference between Tollins and Fairies:

"Tollins are not fairies. Though they both have wings, fairies are delicate creatures and much smaller. Tollins are also a lot less fragile than fairies. In fact, the word 'fragile' can't really be used about them at all. They are about as fragile as a housebrick!"

Reviews

* The Dangerous Book for Boys has sold over 3 million copies around the world * Conn Iggulden was the first author to hit the top of the non-fiction and fiction bestseller lists simultaneously * This is a fairytale with bite - perfect for parents who despair of finding fun stories for their boys!

About the Author

Conn Iggulden

Conn Iggulden on Conn Iggulden:

I was born in the normal way in 1971, and vaguely remember half-pennies and sixpences. I have written for as long as I can remember: poetry, short stories and novels. It’s what I always wanted to do and read English at London University with writing in mind. I taught English for seven years and was Head of English at St. Gregory’s RC High school in London by the end of that period. I have enormous respect for those who still labour at the chalk-face. In truth, I can’t find it in me to miss the grind of paperwork and initiatives. I do miss the camaraderie of the smokers’ room, as well as the lessons where their faces lit up as they understood what I was wittering on about.

I’ve always loved historical fiction as a genre and cut my teeth on Hornblower and Tai-Pan, Flashman, Sharpe and Jack Aubrey. I still remember the sheer joy of reading my first Patrick O’Brian book and discovering there were nineteen more in the series. I love just about anything by David Gemmell, or Peter F. Hamilton or Wilbur Smith. I suppose the one thing that links all those is the love of a good tale.
