This title contains two tales written in Martin Waddell's inimitable lyrical style. Each story is packed with atmosphere and a twist of gentle humour. From Soft Butter rising from his grave in a field to Himself's refusal to leave Dan alone - wherever he goes, children will be drawn on irresistibly by these original stories. Illustrated throughout with James Mayhew's atmospheric line drawings. A further three titles in the series to follow.
