Gripping Tales: Fair's Fair

Written by Leon Garfield

Illustrated by Brian Hoskin

Part of the Gripping Tales Series

Gripping Tales: Fair's Fair Synopsis

Jackson is cold and starving in the dreadful winter weather. He's looking forward to the steaming pie that is payment for a long night's work. When the huge black dog comes - growling and glaring - Jackson gives it half his meal. One bargain soon leads to another - and to some unexpected rewards . . . With an engaging (and very creepy) story, illustrated in colour and black and white on every double page spread, this story is ideal for newly confident readers.

About Leon Garfield

Leon Garfield (1921-1996) is widely regarded as one of the 20th century's finest children's writers. His first novel was the highly-acclaimed Jack Holborn (1964) and this was followed by many exciting, dramatic novels, often with historical themes, ranging from acclaimed retellings of Greek myths to tales of piracy to adventures, romances and supernatural stories set in the 18th ad 19th centuries. He won both the Carnegie Medal and the Whitbread Award.
