Synopsis

Fairy Tales and Fantastic Stories by Terry Jones

How slow is an ogre? How do you get rid of a dragon (if it's on your roof)? Would you go off with a fly-by-night? And who was the funniest dog in the world? These are a few of the important questions that are answered in this book. Terry Jones' brilliant fairy tales will take you to strange lands and fabulous kingdoms where you'll find mystery and magic, sadness and silliness, and more adventures than you'll know what to do with. The surreal lands and eccentric characters are superbly illustrated by Michael Foreman in his signature watercolours, which perfectly capture the energy and wit of every story.

Reviews

[A] wonderful book of tales.
