What would you do if you found a tunnel beneath your shed?

What if you knew it led to a whole other world?

And what if that world might be home to a dragon ... with two heads?

Professor Clive Oddney has no doubts - he must investigate!

Armed with his late Uncle Cuthbert's journal of mysterious creatures, the retired naturalist and his loyal friend Magnus, the sharp-witted magpie, embark on adventure into Otherland. Their quest? To seek out The Two-Headed Firedrake. Will they find it? Not if the mad, the bad and the downright weird buttock-snapping inhabitants of this world have anything to do about it.

One thing is for certain, an adventure as epic as this one, will rely upon the strength of true friendship.
