Description

Grizzelda Frizzle. What is the dreadful secret? And what might happen to the prince if she tries to kiss him when he visits her council estate? Worse still, what might happen to her?

Then there is the Tiny Jumping Mouse, the roaring noise in his ears tells him he has to go out and explore the world, but what will become of him when he is exposed to such a dangerous place? Who is the mysterious stranger that Nathan and his father drag out of the ocean? And what horrors await the evil Mr Mercrank in the sinister orchard?

These and other questions are answered with a blend of humour, magic and reality in this collection of stories by one of Britain's favourite children's authors.

About Brian Patten

Brian Patten has written many books of poetry for adults and children, as well as prose and drama for stage and radio. He is the youngest of the Liverpool poets who, in the 1960s, along with Adrian Henri and Roger McGough, revitalised the idea of poetry as a performance art as well as something written for the page. Their joint collection, The Mersey Sound, was published by Penguin in 1967 and became a bestseller over several decades. All three poets were given the Freedom of the City of Liverpool in 2001. Patten is also an Honorary Fellow of Liverpool John Moore's University, and has received awards including an Eric Gregory Award, an Arts Council award and a Cholmondeley Award.
