A novel by

 
 
A brilliantly rich and strange fantasy adventure that will make us all believe in monsters be they good, bad or somewhere in between.


It is a well-known fact that fairies are born from a baby's first laugh. What is not as well documented is how monsters come into being


This is the story of a creature who is both strange and unique. When he hatches down in the vast underground lair where monsters dwell, he looks just like a human boy – much to the disgust of everyone watching. Even the grumpy gargoyles who adopt him and nickname him 'Imp' only want him to steal chocolate for them from the nearby shops. He's a child with feet in both worlds, and he doesn't know where he fits.

But little does Imp realise that Thunderguts, king of the ogres, has a great and dangerous destiny in mind for him, and he'll stop at nothing to see it come to pass …
