CLASSIC. Adapted from the 1927 novel by E. A. Wyke-Smith, audiences of all ages will be enthralled with this delightful tale, which inspired J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit. Joe and Sylvia run away from Mrs. Watkyns’ Home for Superfluous Children and set out to find the village of the Snergs. In the forest, Joe and Sylvia encounter a jovial, fun-loving Snerg named Gorbo, who foolishly gives them a tour of the Forest of Twisted Trees and suddenly discovers he’s lost. As the weary travelers try to find their way back to the Snergs’ village, they encounter a lazy dragon who has no interest in pillaging towns, a knight who dislikes fighting, and a court jester who loves to play bad practical jokes. When the travelers follow an underground cavern and arrive on the other side of the river, they find themselves in deadly peril when they fall into the clutches of a fiendish witch and a “reformed” ogre who claims he no longer eats children.
