It was a dark and stormy night, the rain came down in torrents, there were brigands on the mountains, and wolves, and the chief of the brigands said to Antonio, I'm bored - tell us a story! No one tells a better story than Antonio. His tale is full of action and absurdity, pirates, parrots and chocolate carnival cake, rubies, emeralds, diamonds of enormous size...and a Thingy. Antonio just makes it up as he goes along. And he begins It was a dark and stormy night... Janet and Allan Ahlberg are to children's books what Fred and Ginger were to dancing . ( Guardian ).
