Norbert Nipkin and the Magic Riddle Stone
The adventure continues!

Humour and suspense combine to hold the reader spellbound until the adventureâ€™s dramatic conclusion. This new edition features a never-before printed pull-out illustration by the artist called "Hide and Seek", suitable for framing for the bedroom or classroom.
