Alice's new pet bird doesn't speak—it barks! Dad says the bird must go, but what do you do with a barking bird? When greedy Albert pinches a Mars bar, his grandmother warns him of the curse of the were-pig. Will he grow a curly tail when the sun comes out? Looby doesn't believe in fairy tales any more, but maybe she should just give the frog in the garden a tiny kiss. This title presents three lively and funny tales from Smarties Prize-winning author Paul Stewart.
