Forget happy endings. From the bad beginning to the foul final page, there’s nothing but darkness in store!

Such as a harpoon gun, a rooftop sunbathing salon, two mysterious initials, three unidentified triplets, a notorious villain and an unsavoury curry. Will they ever escape the ogre Olaf and his hideous henchmen?
