Tom Gauld’s first book for children published by Holiday House (US) and by Templar Books (UK) and translated into eleven other languages.
A little wooden robot embarks on a quest to find his missing sister. A prince and princess themselves, the epic tale’s cast of characters includes the King and Queen, an inventor and a witch, a family of beetles, a barge captain, pixies, a magic pudding and a team of brave forest dwellers.
For years, the king and queen tried desperately to have a baby. Their wish was twice granted when an engineer and a witch gave them a little wooden robot and an enchanted log princess. There’s just one catch, every night when the log princess sleeps, she transforms back into an ordinary log. She can only be woken with the magic words Awake, little log, awake.
