The Totally Terrifying Three

Hiawyn Oram, David Melling

7 Reviews

Rated 0

For National Curriculum Early Years, Interest age: from c 3 years, Fiction, Picture books, Witches & ghosts (Children's / Teenage)

This is a brilliant book for all children who love dragons, giants and witches!

Illustrated by the bestselling creator of Hugless Douglas and written by the author of Mona the Vampire.

The Totally Terrifying Three consist of a big fat cumbersome fire breathing dragon, a stumpy grumpy little wicked witch and a stubbly GIANT in a sharp suit. All three think they are ever so terrifying and scare themselves to bits assuming they will have the same effect on the everyday folk! An entertaining read for pre-schoolers everywhere. If this text was a witches cauldron, it would have a pinch of rhyme, a sprinkle of interaction, an smattering of repetition and a big spoonful of humour!

'A fun story to share with toddlers that bears repeated reading!' The Bookbag

Hiawyn Oram

Hiawyn Oram grew up in South Africa. After graduating in English and Drama from the University of Kwa Zulu Natal, she worked as an advertising copywriter before becoming a full-time writer. She's written more than a 100 children's books starting with the old classic ANGRY ARTHUR Illustrated by Satoshi Kitamura, now an ebook by MEBOOKS. Her work has been published in more than 30 languages including Russian and Chinese, Turkish, Slovak and Polish and won or been short-listed for several awards. She also writes poetry, script and lyrics for musicals and has developed and written for animated TV. Dreamworks in the US have optioned her series starring Rumblewick, an overworked cat to a reluctant witch, as the inspiration for an animated movie. THE VACKEES, a musical for which she wrote the words, is regularly performed across the country and LAST TRAIN TO TOMORROW, about the rescue of 10,000 Jewish children from the holocaust, was performed by the Halle Orchestra, junior choir and actors to standing ovation. Her favourite children's book ever is THE SECRET GARDEN by F.H. Burnett and her vote for best children's movie goes to Disney's JUNGLE BOOK, narrowly pipping KUNG FU PANDA to the post. Hiawyn lives in London where, when not writing, she can be found inventing games for grandchildren and getting messy covering canvasses in paint.
