and Other Cautionary Tales

3.59 based on 17 ratings & 4 reviews on Goodreads.com

Are you brave enough to find out what happens when a spoilt girl is spiteful to a giant hungry worm?

Can you bear to watch a (very silly) boy poke an angry sleeping sea-monster?

Do you dare to discover why should you never, ever steal milk from a Frid?*

Beware: Naughty children always get their just deserts . . .

Eva Ibbotson's Let Sleeping Sea-Monsters Lie contains five delightfully funny cautionary tales, with a foreword by Julia Donaldson, author of The Gruffalo.

*A dog-munching rock. Doesn't everyone know that?
