Synopsis

Buckle and Squash and the Land of the Giants by Sarah Courtauld

Here begins a tale of Eliza, who wants to become a swashbuckling hero, and Lavender, who dreams of being a fairy-tale princess. When Lavender casts a spell to make herself tiny, becoming a giant's birthday present was never part of her plan. Unfortunately, this giant loves dolls' houses and isn't letting her new toys out of her sight. Can Eliza and Lavender come up with a cunning plan to escape? Where have all the gentle giants gone? Is Lavender really magical? How many socks can their goat, Gertrude, actually eat? And what's for dinner? This book might answer these questions, but then again it might not ...A brilliantly funny quirky story for fans of How to Train Your Dragon and Mr Gum.
