Spiggot's Quest

Number 1 in series

By Garry Kilworth

  • Paperback
  • £5.99

Contemporary England melds with medieval Faerieland with extraordinary, wonderful, and terrifying results in this trilogy opener from twice Carnegie-shortlisted author, Garry Kilworth.

Faerieland. It's like a reflection of your world ... a warped reflection. And Jack has just stumbled right into it - with a whole lot of trouble on his tail. Trolls, goblins, ogres and giants ... all after one thing. But Jack's got no clue what. He needs some allies, like now. A wizard maybe. Or a High Fairy. Someone who can do serious magic. Someone who can help him get home. Anyone. Just not a dreamy young boggart named Spiggot...

The Knights of Leofwende continues with: 2. Mallmoc's Castle (July '03) and Boggart and Fen (July '04)

Brandt Lewis, Cori Doerrfeld

In this Halloween-themed follow-up to Fingers for Lunch, young readers will burst into giggles as they fit their fingers through die-cut holes and a hungry little monster (played by a parent) tries to gobble up every last one! The monster is dressed in classic Halloween costumes on each spread and is ready for a night of devilish trick-or-treating. But no amount of candy will satisfy its craving for delicious, juicy fingers! As the pages turn and the monster eats its fill, the finger holes disappear one by one until there are no wigglers left and it's time to drift off to sleep.Little readers will be drawn to the bold, colorful illustrations and kid-friendly rhyming text, each page ending with the fun sound word "chomp!" And once all the fingers are gone, it's easy to start back at the beginning and count down all over again!
