9780857534378: Dragons at Crumbling Castle: And Other Stories

Dragons have invaded Crumbling Castle, and all of King Arthur’s knights are either on holiday or visiting their grannies. It’s a disaster!

Luckily, there’s a spare suit of armour and a very small boy called Ralph who’s willing to fill it. Together with Fortnight the Friday knight and Fossfiddle the wizard, Ralph sets out to defeat the fearsome fire-breathers.

But there's a teeny weeny surprise in store . . .

Fourteen fantastically funny stories from master storyteller Sir Terry Pratchett, full of time travel and tortoises, monsters and mayhem!

‘So funny I dropped my spoon laughing!’ – King Arthur

Recensione:

"Funny, action-packed . . . a rip-roaring read." ( The Sun)

"Full of [Pratchett's] burgeoning wit and wordplay . . . A delightful romp." ( Sunday Times)

"A splendid collection . . . rumbustious, irreverent and hilarious." ( Booktrust)

"A good choice for the chapter-book set, this is highly recommended for reading aloud to younger children as well . . . Pratchett’s vast, all-ages fan base will be intrigued by these early offerings, while their accessibility and skillful storytelling will pull in young newcomers to the masterful author's work." ( Booklist)

"Charming and funny . . . Accompanied by Beech’s wiry Quentin Blake–like illustrations, as well as numerous typographical flourishes, this volume will please both its intended audience and older Pratchett completists." ( Publishers Weekly)

"Terry Pratchett’s youthful short stories, as collected in Dragons at Crumbling Castle, just prove that he has always been what he is . . . These stories are far too good for children. Oops, I mean for children not to share with older people. But you knew that." ( The Bookwitch)

"A joy to read . . . from dragons and wizards to monsters and talking animals, there really is something in each story to appeal to everyone." ( whatsgoodtogo.co.uk)
