Discover a magical adventure that will test two children's bravery to the limit... the Ickabog is coming. With a mythical monster and a kingdom in peril, this is a brilliantly original fairy tale about the power of hope and friendship to triumph against all odds, from one of the world’s best storytellers! The kingdom of Cornucopia had plenty of gold, a king with the finest moustaches you could possibly imagine, and butchers, bakers and cheesemongers and much more. It seemed that everything was perfect – except for the misty Marshlands to the north which, according to legend, were home to the monstrous Ickabog. Anyone sensible knew that the Ickabog was just a myth, to scare children into behaving. But the funny thing about myths is that sometimes they take on a life of their own... Could this myth bring a once happy country to it's knees? Could a myth thrust two children into an adventure they didn’t ask for and never expected? If you’re feeling brave, step into the pages of this book to find out… Product Information: ISBN: 9781510202252 Author: J.K.

Prepare to be spellbound by Jim Kay's dazzling depiction of the wizarding world and much loved characters in this full-colour illustrated hardback edition of the nation's favourite children's book - Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.

Then he hears of a missing stone with astonishing powers, which could be valuable, dangerous - or both. An incredible adventure is about to begin! The must-have gift for all Harry Potter fans.
