By Michael Morpurgo, Illustrated by Shahar Kober

Classic storytelling from the former children’s laureate Michael Morpurgo for Egmont’s red banana series.

At school she’s called ‘weedy Wendy’, but Wendy isn’t afraid of Slinky – Grandad’s snake. When she takes Slinky to school and he wriggles out of her school bag, Wendy will brave anything to rescue him.
