The Tale of a Tail, Paperback


Strange and exciting things are in store when Tom and his mum move to Prodigy Street one ordinary Thursday.

There's a man with a magical name, a friendly dog with a powerful, waggy tail, and some remarkable surprises when anyone makes a wish.

Includes more than 50 hilarious black and white illustrations by Tony Ross, who also illustrates Francesca Simon's Horrid Henry books and David Walliams' children's books, as well as his own picture books.
