Hundreds of years ago, in the East of England there was an area called
The Smeeth. Shrouded in mist, it was a landscape of farming, fens... and fear.
Strange demons haunted the fields and
villages of this marshy hinterland. Into this
West-Norfolk wilderness strode an unlikely champion: a bluff young boy called Tom Hickathrift.
About the book:
Tom finds himself deep in the dark, dank Smeeth and has to face man-eating ogres, ghostly dogs, talking tree spirits, dragons, bears, wolves – and worst of all, his own ravenous hunger for pie.
