Fairy tales, fantastical turns and flights of fancy: stories are often unbound by reality. From portentous dragonflies and forest jinns to a society created by children where adults are almost invisible, set your imagination free with three writers whose playfulness and pleasure in the unreal make for thrilling storytelling.

Dongeng, putaran fantastis dan penerbangan yang mewah: cerita seringkali tidak terikat oleh kenyataan. Capung mencolok dan jin hutan ke masyarakat yang diciptakan oleh anak-anak di mana orang dewasa hampir tak terlihat, tetapkan imajinasimu gratis dengan tiga penulis yang bermain-main dan kesenangannya dalam pencarian yang tidak nyata untuk cerita yang mendebarkan.
