This is a children's book. But it is for real children. It is a book of buried treasure, people-eating giants, sleeping kings and a monster fish. There's fire, wee, milk and missing body parts. It s a book that s got the bits adults don t like left in. These are stories of Shropshire. They are old and wild, like the land itself. If you like giants having their heads lopped off, girls who won t do what they re told, knights fighting with lances, one-armed ghosts and grumpy witches, then this is the book for you.
