‘It was a dark and stormy night, the rain came down in torrents, there were brigands on the mountains, and wolves, and the chief of the brigands said to Antonio, ‘I’m bored – tell us a story!’ A very brave eight year-old has been kidnapped by a nasty band of brigands and has been carried off to their secret cave. What stories will he tell? Will it be enough to save him? What is the Thingy in the moat? And will the chief manage to dodge the flying Gorgonzola? Created by Janet and Allan Ahlberg, authors and illustrators of other children’s classics such as The Jolly Postman, Burglar Bill and Each Peach Pear Plum.
