Synopsis

TOLLINS II: DYNAMITE TALES by Conn Iggulden

More tall tales about tiny people from the bestselling author of THE DANGEROUS BOOK FOR BOYS - now in paperback with all new black and white illustrations...But whatever you do, DON'T call them fairies! We return to Chorleywood, home of the Tollins - tiny creatures with wings who aren't fairies and are about as fragile as a house brick. In three thrilling stories, they will face the trials of armed invasion, radio technology and...amateur dramatics. In Romeo and Beryl, Sparkler discovers an old human book and decides to put on a play of a story that is filled with great love and even more shouting. At the same time, a new craze sweeps Chorleywood, as Dragonfly racing literally takes off. In Radio, the Dark Tollins of Dorset invade in force, with a housecat leading the charge. Sparkler, Wing, and Grunion must find a way to save themselves, and possibly the cat as well. Finally, in Bones, the Tollins leave Chorleywood on a mission of mercy. The homes of the Dark Tollins are about to be blown up by humans! We will discover the importance of hot tea and toast in such desperate times. As well as jam, obviously. Once again, it's Sparkler and his band of Tollins to the rescue!

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.
