The Secret World of OgPaperback - 1991
The Canadian classic, written by Pierre Berton and illustrated by his daughter, Patsy, has sold more than 200,000 copies in four editions. A favourite of young readers and their parents alike, The Secret World of Og is available once again, for a new generation of children. In this fantasy adventure, four children Penny, the leader; Pamela, her common-sense sister; Peter, whose life's ambition is to become a garbageman; and Patsy, who collects frogs in her pockets set out in search of their baby brother, Paul, better known as The Pollywog, who has vanished mysteriously from their playhouse. Accompanied by their fearless pets, the children descend through a secret trapdoor into a strange underground world of mushrooms, whose green inhabitants know only one word: OG! Of his forty-seven books, this is Pierre Berton's personal favourite, partly because the characters were inspired by his own children. The Secret World of Og brings Berton more fan mail than anything else he's written at least a dozen letters a week from children across the country.
