Discover a brilliantly original fairy tale about the power of hope and friendship to triumph against all odds, from one of the world\u2019s best storytellers. The kingdom of Cornucopia was once the happiest in the world. It had plenty of gold, a king with the finest moustaches you could possibly imagine, and butchers, bakers and cheesemongers whose exquisite foods made a person dance with delight when they ate them. Everything was perfect \u2013 except for the misty Marshlands to the north which, according to legend, were home to the monstrous Ickabog.
