The Totally Terrifying Three
By Hiawyn Oram
Illustrated by David Melling
A brilliant story for all children who love dragons, giants and witches, illustrated by the bestselling creator of Hugless Douglas.
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, a smattering of repetition and a big spoonful of humour!
Written by the author of Mona the Vampire and illustrated by the bestselling creator of Hugless Douglas.
