Meg Up the Creek by Helen Nicoll


Meg Up the Creek by Helen Nicoll

Meg, Mog and Owl are back in a wonderful outdoor adventure. The three head off in a canoe for an exciting hunting trip but it doesn't take long for things to start going wrong. First, they forget to tie up the canoe, then they can't find anything to eat and finally disaster looms when they can't light a fire. Meg resorts to using one of her trusty spells, managing to conjure up a charming Chinese dragon who lights their fire, provides something to eat and flies them all safely home.
