Product description

If Peter Pan had been a girl… with a beard… then she’d have probably been called King Coo! That’s right: King Coo doesn’t go to (yawn) school. She rules the forest, swinging through the trees and doing exactly what she likes! Cool! Now it’s time to meet our story’s zero-to-hero, Ben Pole. He’s on the run from horrid bully Monty Grabbe when he finds himself lost in a strange forest. There are rope swings, water slides, a wombat called Herbert and a girl-king with a beard! But watch out: Monty and his gang have a dastardly plan…

  • A brilliantly illustrated tale bursting with zany energy
  • Full of imagination, excitement and unexpected twists
  • Themes of trusting yourself and standing up to bullies
  • Semi-graphic style which is great for Tom Gates fans

“Told in words and pictures, Adam Stower’s hilarious story is beautifully presented.” Julia Eccleshare

“Unbearably brilliant, a modern mischievous masterpiece!” The Book Sniffer
