George loves to help out at hidden Wormestall Farm, even though it's
full of extinctly scary creatures, like the dodo in the dog bed
and the dinosaurs in the duck pond. When Mortifer the giant basilisk
goes missing, it's up to George to find him before wicked
taxidermist Diamond Pye can add to her stuffed animal collection

Our customer reviews

This is a fun adventure for kids of all ages and a perfect book for young, independent readers. With more than a little nod to Roald Dahl and Cruela De Vil, it is full of crazy characters and crazier creatures. I enjoyed it as an adult and am sure that my kids will love reading it. It's the type of story that puts the kid head-to-head with silly adults and shows that with a little courage and ingenuity, seemingly ordinary children can save the day. Read it for the fantastic animals (like giant ducks, a unicorn called Big Nigel and the actual dragon that fought St George!) and for the high adventure against an evil taxidermist called Diamond Pye, what a name!show more
