About the Author
Despite finding time to write historical novels and The Dangerous Book for Boys, Conn Iggulden is in some ways better known as a trainer of Tollins. His Tollin troupe, Small and Mighty, are famous in Tasmania, where they often play to packed houses. Tragically, he lost his two best-known performers earlier this year. "The thing about transporting Tollins in shoe boxes," he says, "the really important thing, is to remember to put the airholes in."
Lizzy Duncan, with her trademark blue glasses, was a founding member of the Tollins in Art program, where inner-city schoolchildren are taken to the countryside by bus and encouraged to paint and observe Tollins in their natural habitats. Tollins: Explosive Tales for Children was her first illustrated book.
Lizzy's abstract paintings of Tollins are much sought after whenever they appear at Sotheby's auction house, and she is very active in promoting Tollin rights and registering them as a protected wetland species—or as a dryland species, if the weather's been good.
Conn and Lizzy's first book together, Tollins: Explosive Tales for Children, was published in 2009 to great critical acclaim—and has ensured that no one will ever mistake a Tollin for a fairy again.
Hal Iggulden is the artistic director of the Holdfast Theatre Company in Leicester, England.

These books are read over and over and cherished.
One word of warning - I had parents who had not read the book complain to the principal about their children being given "dangerous books" I sent letters out before I purchased them with a copy of the table of contents included but that was not enough. If you're giving it as a gift - make sure the parents know that the word "dangerous" is just there (in my opinion) to make the title appealing to boys,
This pocket book is composed mostly of the activities included in its source book, with perhaps 25% new material (like the Garden Rocket). Like the original, it is attractively designed, and more importantly, it's well-bound, so it can stand up to the wear and tear it should encounter as it's used as a field guide.
