The Something (Board)
When a little boy's ball disappears down a mysterious hole in the garden, he can't stop thinking about what could be down there - a little mouse's house? The lair of a hungry troll? Or maybe even a dragon's den. Whatever it may be, he's determined to find out! The Something is a glorious, imaginative adventure from Rebecca Cobb, the award-winning creator of Aunt Amelia and Lunchtime, and the illustrator of The Paper Dolls, written by Julia Donaldson.
