Book description
When the Ferocious Beast and his friends Maggie and Hamilton Hocks go birdwatching in Nowhere Land, an adventure is bound to happen. And sure enough, they come across Nedley the rabbit struggling to dig an enormous carrot out of the ground. At first Nedley doesn't want their help, but soon it becomes clear that he'll never get it out by himself. Can the Ferocious Beast and all his friends dig it up together?

Between school sessions, he summers with the horrendous Dursleys, who seem to want nothing more than to crush our hero's spirit.
