The Ickabog is coming... A mythical monster, a kingdom in peril, an adventure that will test two children's bravery to the limit. Discover a brilliantly original fairy tale about the power of hope and friendship to triumph against all odds, from one of the world's best storytellers.

The kingdom of Cornucopia was once the happiest in the world. It had plenty of gold, a king with the finest moustaches you could possibly imagine, and butchers, bakers and cheesemongers whose exquisite foods made a person dance with delight when they ate them.

Everything was perfect - except for the misty Marshlands to the north which, according to legend, were home to the monstrous Ickabog. Anyone sensible knew that the Ickabog was just a myth, to scare children into behaving. But the funny thing about myths is that sometimes they take on a life of their own.

Could a myth unseat a beloved king? Could a myth bring a once happy country to its knees? Could a myth thrust two children into an adventure they didn't ask for and never expected?

If you're feeling brave, step into the pages of this book to find out...

A beautiful hardback edition, perfect for sharing and gift-giving. Brought to life with full-colour illustrations by the young winners of The Ickabog Illustration Competition.

Joanne Kathleen Rowling (31 de xullo de 1965) é a autora británica da historia fantástica de Harry Potter, o neno mago e orfo.





Nació en Chipping Sodburry, South Gloucestershire.





O seu editor, Bloomsbury, quixo que ela utilizara as súas iniciais na portada dos libros de Harry Potter, indicando que un nombre feminino na portada atraería menos o interese dos nenos, polo que decidiu utilizar o nome da súa avoa "Kathleen".





En febrero de 2004, a revista Forbes indicaba que a fortuna de Rowling ascendía a 576 millones de libras esterlinas, convertíndose na primeira persona que se fixo millonaria escribindo libros.


É a muller máis rica do Reino Unido, e moito máis rica ca Raiña Isabel II.





A escritora obtivo o Premio Príncipe de Asturias da Concordia no ano 2003.
