Freaks of Nature

Author(s): Jamie Rix


Grizzliness is out there. Every child has the makings of mischievousness, and can be lured into committing dastardly deeds. The six stories in each of the Grizzly Tales books show the rise and hard fall of vile and villainous children. We have completely reinvented Grizzly Tales for today's readers - ingenious concepts to link the separate stories, new design and illustrations, new accessible formats, but still capturing Jamie Rix's legendary brilliance for creating stories that linger in the mind long after the lights go out at night! The wicked children in the fourth book thought they'd take on Mother Nature, but as they learned to their eternal cost, she is not the sort of mother you can easily challenge!
