The Totally Terrifying Three by Hiawyn Oram

The Totally Terrifying Three consist of a big fat cumbersome fire breathing dragon, a stumpy grumpy little wicked witch and a stubbly GIANT in a sharp suit. All three think they are ever so terrifying and scare themselves to bits assuming they will have the same effect on the everyday folk! An entertaining read for pre-schoolers everywhere. If this text was a witches cauldron, it would have a pinch of rhyme, a sprinkle of interaction, a smattering of repetition and a big spoonful of humour!Written by the author of Mona the Vampire and illustrated by the bestselling creator of Hugless Douglas.'A fun story to share with toddlers that bears repeated reading!' The Bookbag


Children will enjoy the vibrant illustrations and reassuring storyline... the use of capitals just begs for little ones to join in shouting Totally terrifying! * Carousel * A wonderfully imaginative story, packed with vibrant and colourful illustrations. * * Melling has a great, fun style. A fun story to share with toddlers that bears repeated reading! * Bookbag * Should easily become another success... great to read aloud and share. * The School Librarian * Fun-filled illustrations by David Melling complement the story marvellously. * * A romping and useful book to banish any thoughts your child might have of beasties at bedtime. * Junior * Praise for Hugless Douglas: Everybody needs a hug... a charming and endearing tale about searching for the right one. * The Bookseller *
