Product description

One dark and stormy night, a little boy is captured by brigands who drag him back to their cave. The rain is coming down in torrents, the wolves are howling in the hills … and there’s nothing to do. The brigands are bored! So the little boy, Antonio, tells them a story; and soon one’s not enough – they want more! Thrill along to Antonio’s tales of pirates, parrots, stolen jewels and chocolate cake. We don’t know how they’ll end. But here’s how they start: ‘It was a dark and stormy night…’

  • A classic book of adventure stories from a legendary duo
  • Five funny tales illustrated in colour by Janet Ahlberg
  • Perfect for sharing out loud or for first solo reading
  • Wonderfully inventive fiction that celebrates storytelling
