George loves to help out at hidden Wormestall Farm, even though it’s full of extinctly scary creatures, like the dodo in the dog bed and the dinosaurs in the duck pond. When Mortifer the giant basilisk goes missing, it’s up to George to find him before wicked taxidermist Diamond Pye can add him to her stuffed animal collection ...

"As a child, trips to London meant one of two places: London Zoo or the Natural History Museum. The zoo was wonderful but it was in the Museum that my imagination took flight. I loved everything about it: the bones, the fossils, the stuffed animals, the stone beasts carved into its soaring walls.

And if I could invite just one of Wormestall’s inhabitants into my home, which would I choose? That’s a really tricky question ... I’m very fond of them all."
