The Lovereading4Kids comment

Even more inventive and wondrous than the fairy stories, this classic anthology is a treasure trove of the unusual and the unexpected. Terry Jones revels in the crazy capers and madcap antics of humans and animals alike. Each story is vividly brought to life in Michael Foreman’s brilliant illustrations.

Synopsis

Fantastic Stories (The Fantastic World of Terry Jones) by Terry Jones

Meet a man with eyes all over his body who sees everything, except what is most important, a boy who is the best tickler in all of the land, and an ogre who's height is far greater than his ability to think. This amazing collection of wonderful stories from the hilarious imagination of Terry Jones and illustrated by Michael Foreman will have children and parents alike rolling with laughter.
