More About This Title Fantastic Stories


Packed full of adventure, magic, and fantasy, a fabulous new edition of the collection written by Monty Python's Terry Jones and illustrated by Michael Foreman

Meet a man who has eyes all over his body and sees everything but what is most important, a boy who is the best tickler in all of the land, and a gigantic ogre, where the only thing bigger than him is his idiocy. These 21 hilarious tales will have both children and parents rolling with laughter.


Terry Jones is a historian, performer, director, and writer for film, radio, and television; but is perhaps best known as a scriptwriter and member of the Monty Python team. He is the author of Lady Cottington's Pressed Fairy Book and Terry Jones' Barbarians, as well as such children's titles as Bedtime Stories. Michael Foreman is a Kate Greenaway Award– and Smarties Book Prize–winning illustrator who has worked on a vast range of children's books. He is the author and illustrator of several books, including Cat in the Manger, Classic Fairy Tales, and Hello World


"Foreman's watercolor vignettes reflect a palette that varies from brilliant to ethereal . . . the humor shines through. Fans of fractured fairy tales will enjoy reading or telling some of these stories."  —School Library Journal"Amazingly funny." —Denver Post
