A rusty key opens a dusty box hidden in Alfie's grandad's shed. Inside is an old, old book -- with magical powers. The book promises Alfie a gift, but first he must take the crystal flower across Sleepy Meadows full of Snapping Dragons to the crooked tree that is guarded by Giant Hogweeds. If Alfie succeeds he will be able to do something he has never done before! The first book in the Alfie Green series: now in paperback.
