Pickwick's Plan begins with a Little Pixie Town on the edge of the enchanted Great Booga Dooga Forest near the Great Booga Dooga Lake in the enchanted Booga Dooga Land and revolve around the life and adventures of one of the smallest Pixies, Pickwick. The story was told chapter by chapter to my little children and evolved in its telling - there was the magic of playing with the words of the English language, and the emergence of different beings who have made the book a unique "Family Read Together" experience. Every line is original and every episode opens out new vistas. Two more books of the Tales of the Booga Dooga Land, 'The Wormus', and 'The Horus' have been published and will be followed by many other books in the series, with each being an independent book in itself."
