This picture book story will help to develop your child’s language and literacy skills, especially their listening skills. Watching it together is a great way of encouraging your child to enjoy books and the whole process of storytelling. The activity is also great for stimulating their imagination as they listen to the the narrator tell the funny tale of a young boy's fantasy adventure with dragons and wardrobe monsters!

How to extend the magic

Why not create a special storytelling den in the corner of the room and have fun together imagining that you are exploring a fantasy land (like the one in the story). Would your trees be made from umbrellas too? What about the hills? Perhaps they could be cushion hills instead of pillow hills? What weird and wonderful creatures will you see on your adventures?
