Major Higginbottom loves adventures, especially in the mountains! Since ending his days in the army he has spent his days clambering over all kinds of mountains and hills! But in Major Higginbottom’s Adventures in the Mountain he discovers all kinds of unusual and magical animals, as well as some rather peculiar mountain people!

Major Higginbottom’s Adventures in the Mountain is a magical journey inside a mountain with a jolly Major who is hoping someone will help him to get home! A great read for older kids who are quite confident with reading, and of course most books are great for grown-ups to read to most kids of any age, and this is no exception. Grab your copy to see how Major Higginbottom gets on inside the mountain!
