How slow is an ogre? How do you get rid of a dragon if it's on your roof? Would you go off with a fly-by-night? And who was the funniest dog in the world? These are a few of the important questions that are answered in this book. Terry Jones's fairy tales take readers to strange lands and fabulous kingdoms where they will find mystery and magic, sadness and silliness, and more adventures than they will know what to do with.
