From J.K. Rowling, a warm, fast-paced, funny fairy tale of a fearsome monster, thrilling adventure, and hope against all odds.
Once upon a time there was a tiny kingdom called Cornucopia, as rich in happiness as it was in gold, and famous for its food. From the delicate cream cheeses of Kurdsburg to the Hopes-of-Heaven pastries of Chouxville, each was so delicious that people wept with joy as they ate them.

But even in this happy kingdom, a monster lurks. Legend tells of a fearsome creature living far to the north in the Marshlands... the Ickabog. Some say it breathes fire, spits poison, and roars through the mist as it carries off wayward sheep and children alike. Some say it's just a myth...

And when that myth takes on a life of its own, casting a shadow over the kingdom, two children - best friends Bert and Daisy - embark on a great adventure to untangle the truth and find out where the real monster lies, bringing hope and happiness to Cornucopia once more.

Featuring full color illustrations by children from across the United States and Canada, this original fairy tale from one of the world's most celebrated storytellers will captivate readers of all ages.

    Spent December Reading this to the kids at night. Chapters were just the right length so you could read more than a few, but still be able to stop when everyone feel asleep without loosing too much plot. There were a LOT of Character names to contend with, which even as the reader, I was like, wait.. who? Regardless. The kids and I loved it. There was a lot of lead up to what we found to be a very swift resolution. I would have liked more, but upon reflection - its exactly how a parent might wrap up a story they were telling at night, just so you could tuck everyone in and say good night. Would read more like this.
