This is a collection of Pratchett's stories written for the Bucks Free Press, "as a teenager, mostly as they were first printed, although the grown-up me has tinkered just a little with a few fine details - the odd tweak here, a pinch there, and a little note at the bottom where needed, and all because the younger me wasn't as clever then as he turned out to be."

The Blurb:

Coming September 2014: Dragons at Crumbling Castle!

A beautifully illustrated collection of short stories by master storyteller Sir Terry Pratchett, featuring dragons, dinosaurs, cavemen and car races!

Dragons have invaded Crumbling Castle, and all of King Arthur’s knights are either on holiday or visiting their grannies. It’s a disaster! Luckily, there’s a spare suit of armour and a very small boy called Ralph who’s willing to fill it.

So funny I dropped my spoon laughing!’' – King Arthur
