A collection of fantastic stories by the one and only Garth Nix, featuring rude pirates, enchanted penguins, strange inventions and a very beastly beast indeed!

One beastly beast that's more than meets the eye. Two aliens with slimy tentacles and too many eyes fixed on adopting a human son. Three inventors and a sea serpent, a princess, an orphanage and two ships full of pirates. Four fantastic tales by renowned fantasy author Garth Nix. Garth Nix takes on a younger audience with this collection of magical adventures. His trademark imagination and spellbinding storytelling is sure to capture a whole new generation of fans.

'The stories feature bright, level-headed children in situations that call for courage in the face of surprising and even fantastic circumstances.'

'The positive message and amusing stories make this a good choice for younger fantasy fans.'
School Library Journal

'Thoroughly ridiculous and hugely enjoyable.'
Kirkus Reviews

'Nix's four tales mix the everyday and the offbeat. In each story, a clever youngster faces an unusual challenge, whether confronting a fearsome pirate-rat, an alien, or a misunderstood sea serpent. These stories were made to be read aloud, and they've found their perfect narrator in Stig Wemyss. His enthusiasm is contagious, and his twangy Australian accent adds even more fun. Wemyss doesn't miss an opportunity to enliven dialogue or highlight wordplay: “There's a bloody beastly beast on the battlements!" Transforming his voice from that of a guttural pirate-rat into that of a petulant child, an absent-minded parent, or a perplexed sea serpent, he's both playful and insightful. His narration transforms these fun stories into thoroughly delightful performances.'
