Publisher's Summary

A brand new, funny and quirky story based on E.A. Wyke-Smith's classic, the inspiration for J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit. A lost classic - updated in a more contemporary voice. A delightful tale of orphans tricked by an evil witch and rescued by the warm-hearted Snergs.

At the Sunny Bay Home for Superfluous and Accidentally Parentless Children, Pip and Flora are in trouble. Running away with their dog they discover the Marvellous Land of Snergs, a magical world of cinnamon bears and scrumptious feasts - but also one of vegan ogres, disgraced jesters and dastardly Kelps, with a villain dressed entirely in purple....

Soon their only friend is forgetful but lovable snerg, Gorbo. He will lead them home - if they can decide where home really is and if Gorbo can remember how to get there.

Like Tolkien for kids

The hundred year old classic children's story that most people have never heard of. So glad I stumbled across this book.
