The Marvellous Land of Snergs

Author(s): Veronica Cossanteli; original by E.A. Wyke-Smith

Fiction 7+

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.


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, featuring wonderful illustrations from Melissa Castrillón.


'I should like to record my own love and my children’s love of E. A. Wyke-Smith’s Marvellous Land of Snergs, at any rate of the snerg- element of that tale, and of Gorbo the gem of dunderheads, jewel of a companion in an escapade.'
