Stories have been told about the little people for hundreds of years and they appear in many forms. Fairies are either good or wicked. Imps are mischievous. Elves are cheeky and Pixies love to mislead travellers. Although not so well known as these tribes, Boggarts do crop up in such stories as 'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban' but this book greatly expands their role in literature and shows the mischievous ways of these small creatures who, in spite of their reputation, are neither spiteful nor dangerous but just like having fun. Ages 5 - 10 years.
