There is no dragon scarier in any earthly place.
His face looks like his bottom and his bottom like his face!

In the middle of the night there is a noise - a snuffling and a shuffling and a splintering of wood.
A line of Troll prints lead out the door, across the lawn and into the deep, dark forest...
Nikki's goldfish, Great Bumbleduke the Third, needs rescuing!

This furry beast excels at casting magic spells!
Spark's magic can transform anything. He'll turn the bogeys up his nose into some pink ribbons and bows. He'll make a gorgeous high heeled shoe out of a pile of donkey poo...
But terrible things have started to happen in his forest - wasps, werewolves, spells going disastrously wrong - calamities maybe not even Spark can stop...

Dommy B

Full of jammy burps and poems, mild goblin peril and plenty of pictures, The Story of Spark the Goblin Wizard concludes with a chapter of puzzles and games.
