Guy’s book Dinkin Dings and the Frightening Things is a brilliant, daft and wondrous book, ideal to get kids excited about books.
Tim and Simon, The Big Green Bookshop
Dinkin Dings is scared of everything. And not just actual scary things like being tied to a stampeding elephant or shot into space wearing nothing but your underpants. No, Dinkin’s scared of pretty much completely and utterly everything.
Well, not quite everything. There are 3 things Dinkin isn’t afraid of.
- The monster under his bed
- The skeleton in his cupboard
- The ghost outside his window
In fact, they’re his best friends.
He calls them THE FRIGHTENING THINGS.
