Synopsis

Three raindrops have an argument on their way out of a cloud … A silly King goes for a walk with a dog tied to each leg … An enterprising herring, bored of the North Sea, decides to swim right round the world …

Thirty short stories of magic and adventure penned by Monty Python team member, Terry Jones. Embracing the tradition of the fairy tale, but adding Jones's inimitable comic imagination and originality, each story makes a perfect bedtime read for children - and grown ups!

'Could become a "modern classic" … the book is a joy' Brian Patten, Spectator.

Puffin

The first ten paperback Penguin books appeared in 1935 costing 6d each (the price of a packet of cigarettes). Since then the Penguin list has developed enormously, but still aims to bring the best writing to the widest possible audience. Penguin Paperbacks now range from Booker Prize-winning contemporary authors, to mass market bestsellers, with successful history, biography and general non-fiction as well.
