Opis książki

The Ickabog is coming... A mythical monster, a kingdom in peril, an adventure that will test two children's bravery to the limit. Discover a brilliantly original fairy tale about the power of hope and friendship to triumph against all odds, from one of the world's best storytellers. The kingdom of Cornucopia was once the happiest in the world. It had plenty of gold, a king with the finest moustaches you could possibly imagine, and butchers, bakers and cheesemongers whose exquisite foods made a person dance with delight when they ate them. Everything was perfect - except for the misty Marshlands to the north which, according to legend, were home to the monstrous Ickabog.

Surely set to become a classic. Children's Book of the Week * Press Association * JK is back in children's territory with this glorious fairytale that has just the right mix of silliness and peril. It's peppered by children's drawings (those who won The Ickabog Illustration Competition this summer) and lends itself to being read aloud. * MuddyStilettos.co.uk * Her imagination is a marvel and her plotting ever-sophisticated in what could otherwise be deemed a simple tale....The illustration are thrilling, well chosen and a breath of fresh air. It's hard to put an age range on this book which, if read aloud, could captivate children as young as four or five, but will be lapped up especially by seven to ten-year-olds and entranced this 47-year-old. * The Times * Rowling's fairytale, first conceived as a bedtime story for her young children and released online chapter by chapter during lock down, gets a
