9780140322620: Terry Jones' Fairy Tales (Puffin Books)

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.
