Twice Upon a Time

Twice Upon a Time: A Very Good Very Bad Story
James Norcliffe

What happens when you find yourself trapped inside a story?
What happens if the only way out is to solve the riddles of
the Very Bad Very Good Storyteller, Mr Aesop Sod?
And where, oh where, is Pop?

Ginny and her strange new friend, Digger Dagger, must navigate their way through
this upside-down, topsy-turvy world where Don’s Dairy has become Nod’s Diary,
the fish and chip shop is full of tropical fish tanks and wood chips, and the ghost
train at the fun fair really is a ghost train.
How will the story end?

Will Ginny and Digger Dagger find the answers they need?
Sometimes the answers are right there in front of you.

Twice Upon a Time is a delightful story full of wordplay, old-world charm and
imagination, reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland.
