A story for younger children to be enjoyed at any age thanks to Kerry Shale's humorous impersonations and his skill as a narrator.
Ages 5 and upwards.Green Magic follows the adventures of a group of quirky dolls collected from all over the world: Flora, Dora and Hetty come from England, Monsieur Poussin from France, Pedro from Ecuador, Boston from the States, Quinlin and Pinlin from China, Olga Petrovna from Russia, Panchali from India and a carved bird called Niwatori from Japan.
The mysterious Green Man with his dark pebble eyes is different. No one knows where he comes from. His magic turban helps the others in times of trouble. And their adventures are certainly perilous as they set off in search of a safe, new home.
