Long ago in the village of Ettai lived a very thin baker named Forri, who baked all kinds of unusual bread--root bread, ice bread, rose bread, and even nail bread. "Forri was odd. Forri was strange. Forri was crazy." One day the little village is invaded by the cruelest of all barbarians, the Chlars, who show up with clubs, pikes, and battle-axes. The village comes alive when its inhabitants join forces to foil their enemy. Celebrate the victory of the gentle people of Ettai, and find out how a clever but unlikely hero saves the day in this delightful book, humorously illustrated in lively earth tones.
