Hercufleas

Gayton, S. (2015). Hercufleas. London: Andersen Press Ltd.28114444

Hercufleas is an original and touching fable of hope, courage, size, and much more. When Greta needs an ally to fight a giant, she recruits Hercufleas, a large flea. After being separated from his fleamily, this unexpected hero-to-be joins forces with Greta, together embarking on a journey to save the girl’s hometown of Tumber. Many adventures challenge them, but Hercufleas and Greta show that determination and hope are the most important.

This was equally as fun and engrossing a read as Gayton’s Lilliput, inspired by Gulliver’s Travels.

Ages 9-12
