Rated 0

New Zealand, For National Curriculum Key Stage 2, Interest age: from c 7 years, Fiction, Picture Books, Picture storybooks, Poetry (Children's / Teenage), Children's Fiction, Humorous stories (Children's / Teenage), Short stories (Children's / Teenage)


A collection of Margaret Mahy's work including 10 wildly zany stories and 17 nifty comic poems. Mahy has an endlessly inventive imagination

Wonderfully witty and delightfully silly collection of stories and rhyming nonsense from all-star author and artist team, Margaret Mahy and Quentin Blake.

Readers meet the man from Fandango who pays a visit once every five hundred years, the word wizard who casts his spell over the Delmonico family, and many other unforgettable characters in this veritable carnival of stories and poems.

'Mahy makes it [the language] prance and turn and swoop like the lively characters Blake brings airily to life in his inimitable style . . . A treasure trove for storytellers, teachers, parents, or browsers.' Kirkus
