Puffin presents a collection of magical stories from master storyteller, Dick King-Smith.
This collection of exciting stories includes The Magic Carpet Slippers!
The great thing about being 75 years old is that you can wear your slippers everywhere - Percy Sloggett wears his in the garden and to the shops as well as in the house. In time his battered old slippers need to be replaced and he gets something of a surprise when he discovers that his new pair are magic. They make him feel years younger and also make him strong and clever.
Percy is desperate to tell someone his secret and so tells his friend's grand-daughter, Lollie - for of course children understand magic better than adults do. Percy's slippers turn out to be life-savers as they enable him to leap across the road to save Lollie from a disaster!
The other brilliant stories included in this collection are: The Magic Carpet Slippers, Uncle Bumpo, Philibert the First and The Ghost at Codlin Castle

Dick King-Smith was 56 years old when his first book was published, yet he went on to write over 130 books in his lifetime. That’s a lot of animal tales! If you’re not sure where to start with the books of Britain’s best-loved animal storyteller, then who better to ask than King-Smith's great-granddaughter Josie Rogers.
From crime-busting adventures and retold classics to fascinating history books, we've put together a list of the Puffin stories to watch out for in 2022. Jump to: January | February | March | April | May | June
