One rash Thumbelina-inspired wish on a magical snail later, and the Old Tumbledown Farm is suddenly a giant's birthday present-and this giant is t willing to let go of her new toys. Can Eliza and Lavender actually work together to come up with a cunning escape plan or will Lavender be too distracted by the sudden appearance of a handsome prince?Hold on to your socks (or Gertrude will eat them!) as author Sarah Courtauld delivers everything fans of fractured fairytales could want from magic and princes to battling giants and cantankerous goats in Buckle and Squash!
