The Baddies

Written by Julia Donaldson

Axel's latest picture book with author Julia Donaldson is a riot of slapstick fun and silliness.

The Baddies are the meanest, nastiest ghost, witch and troll in the land. They just adore being bad, and fight over who is the worst. When a little girl moves into a nearby cottage, the Baddies can’t wait to scare her out of her wits. But the little girl quickly shows them that you don’t have to be big to be brave, and baddies don’t always win.
