Billy and the Minpins

Roald Dahl’s final brilliant story: danger, magic and wild imagination! It’s tiny matchstick-size people vs evil giants. Can Billy save the day? Billy’s mum has a lot of rules. Rule number one is: he must never go out through the garden gate and explore the dark forest beyond. So one day, that’s exactly what he does! And he doesn’t meet a monster. Instead, he meets the Minpins: teeny-tiny tree-dwelling folk whose children are no bigger than matchsticks. But there is a monster in the forest – the terrible, galloping GRUNCHER! Can Billy stop this hideous beast before it gobbles all the Minpins up?
