There was once a group of trees who were fed up with living in a deep, dark and crowded valley - so they moved to the enchanted forest. But as everybody knows, trees cannot walk without magic. This is the story of how Jack, the small boy with the frozen touch, wanders in to the forest and ends up saving the magic from the greedy goblins outside. An exquisitely illustrated and beautifully told story. 'An enchanting story, perfect for frosty nights.' - Junior David Melling is one of the UK's best-loved author-illustrators. The Hugless Douglas series has sold over 1.4 million copies in 26 languages. Hello, Hugless Douglas! was a World Book Day picture book in 2014.

It was a frosty day and we saw this book in the library. It's a lovely book set in a winter wonderland full of unusual and sweet animals but you'll need to watch out for the silly goblins! It definitely sparked our imaginations on this chilly day.

We recently picked this up at a second-hand book shop and read it this evening. I was bowled over by how much we all enjoyed it: I wasn’t really expecting the story we got (served me right for not bothering with the synopsis!)
The illustrations are lovely - albeit they look a bit on the old-fashioned side.
It tells the story of a real boy who is found in an enchanted forest. It charts his childhood with magical creatures until one day the goblins find him. Luckily Jack is very quick-thinking and has some frosty powers! It’s a fun and whimsical story that puts a spin on the more traditional tale.
Both of my children were captivated by both the story and the illustrations. They barely moved! There’s some great opportunities for silly voices too. The language is pitched so even young children can understand. It’s not too long a read that young children start fussing either.
We will definitely be reading this one again very soon! It’s a new wintery favourite.
