A STORY ABOUT STORIES!

FROM THE AWARD-WINNING CREATORS OF PARSLEY RABBIT'S BOOK ABOUT BOOKS





'Hey, Milly, why are we on this blank page?'

'It won't be blank for long. We're going to be in a STORY, Rory!'



Rory has never been in a story before and he's not even sure how one works. Luckily, he and his friend Milly have a helpful voice on the page (that's me, the narrator) to guide them on an amazing adventure as they encounter an exciting PLOT, spectacular SETTINGS and some very funny CHARACTERS.



So, open the cover and discover how stories are made with the award-winning creators of Parsley Rabbit's Book about Books.
