Tome of terrific tales.

TOLLINS: Explosive Tales for Children by Conn Iggulden, pounds 14.99 hb (HarperCollins) MEET Sparkler. He may have wings but he's not a fairy. He's a Tollin.

Tollins are a lot less fragile than fairies. In fact, they're about as fragile as a house brick.

From the author of The Dangerous Book For Boys, best-selling author Conn introduces the magical and adventurous world of the Tollins, small creatures - invisible to the naked eye but for special blue-lens glasses - who try to live inconspicuously in the leafy village of Chorleywood. That is, until the fireworks factory arrives, and Bonfire Night will never be the same again.

The three stories in this first instalment: How To Blow Up Tollins, Sparkler And The Purple Death and Windbags And Dark Tollins, provide the definitive guide to these remarkable flying creatures.

They come complete with maps of where they live and vivid illustrations of the Tollins in action.

A beautifully illustrated, full colour gift book, it's perfect for boys and girls who enjoy a bit of mischief and lots of laughs.
