Description

Mr Bowns is lazy. Really, really lazy. You may think you are lazy when you veg in front of the TV all day, but that would be a busy day for Mr Bowns.

However, Mr Bowns has a great imagination and he makes up wonderful stories, riddles and poems. One day it is so nice that even he decides to do something. He goes for a walk and is joined by Joanne and Jack, who live next door. 

The more they walk, the more they talk, and the more they talk, the more they walk, until they find themselves lost, deep in the woods. In front of them is a spooky cottage. The children ask for directions at the cottage, but neither return.

Mr Bowns finds himself with a dilemma. He must rescue the children from the cottage, but how? He is after all, the laziest man in the world.

Join Mr Bowns on his astounding adventure, which involves witches, magic, evil cats, talking broomsticks, and friendship.

I would like to thank:

my daughters, Willow and Phoebe,

for listening to my stories;

my parents, Lyn and John,

for always believing in me;

and my wife Rosie

for tidying up after me.

Much of this story was written while I was backpacking around Germany. I want to give a special thanks to the German student who kindly let me stay with him when I couldn't afford a hotel.

His name has been lost over time,

but his generosity has never been forgotten.
