This is a lovely book and David Melling's illustrations are excellent.

" It was just great fun to think up such magical creatures, and wonderful to read about them in the book. It was BRILLIANT."

Alice Cauldwell, age 6

Usually we read a book in class but this time we used our imagination
to make up our own story with David Melling. I will never forget the experience.
