About the Author

Despite finding time to write historical novels and The Dangerous Book for Boys, Conn Iggulden is in some ways better known as a trainer of Tollins. His Tollin troupe, Small and Mighty, are famous in Tasmania, where they often play to packed houses. Tragically, he lost his two best-known performers earlier this year. "The thing about transporting Tollins in shoe boxes," he says, "the really important thing, is to remember to put the airholes in."

Lizzy Duncan, with her trademark blue glasses, was a founding member of the Tollins in Art program, where inner-city schoolchildren are taken to the countryside by bus and encouraged to paint and observe Tollins in their natural habitats. Tollins: Explosive Tales for Children was her first illustrated book.

Lizzy's abstract paintings of Tollins are much sought after whenever they appear at Sotheby's auction house, and she is very active in promoting Tollin rights and registering them as a protected wetland species—or as a dryland species, if the weather's been good.

Conn and Lizzy's first book together, Tollins: Explosive Tales for Children, was published in 2009 to great critical acclaim—and has ensured that no one will ever mistake a Tollin for a fairy again.

Hal Iggulden is the artistic director of the Holdfast Theatre Company in Leicester, England.

I purchased this for my son-in-law as a a gift for him and my grandson. From just a brief look, i thought it had some very interesting things in it. We have purchased the full size book in the past and found it to be a wealth of good things.

I bought this for a birthday gift! The title intrigues the boys into reading! And they actually like doing it! Great for the 8-10 year olds! Good combo with the Dangerous Book for Boys kits.

I remember that he smiled when he saw the title, and he had fun while I was there flipping through the pages.

My 9 year old 3rd grader asks us numerous questions about how things work or how to make things. This was a great book to help him find answers to his questions and learn about new things. The things to do in the book are not truly "dangerous". Safety is explicit where applicable. I highly recomment for other curious boys.
