For fans of dragons, giants and werewolves, this new series entitled An Awfully Beastly Business will we believe be a sure-fire hit with even the most reluctant reader. Short snappy sentences with pages that are overflowing with action, adventure, mystery and mythical creatures are a hallmark of the writing. At its heart is the RSPCB, The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Beasts, an institution for rare and endangered species. In the two launch titles, Werewolf versus Dragon and Sea Monsters and other Delicacies you’ll meet heroes and villains and the plot won’t let up from first page to last with something entirely unexpected. It’s great fuel for boys who are ready to let their imagination run wild.

With the help of Orson the giant, Tiana the fairy and Dr Fielding the RSPCB vet, Ulf the werewolf must race to save the dragons from a cruel fate. Major new adventure-mystery series about a sanctuary for dragons, ogres, werewolves and many other fantastical creatures.
