A new edition of the popular picture book - perfect for beginner readers and for use in schools.
The first time Minton saw him, Hector was shooting right out of a volcano. Hector is the hottest boy who ever lived. No one can come near him, except Minton, the fire salamander. So Hector is unbearably, bone-achingly lonely. Until one day a storm sweeps Hector and Minton far away to the cold snowy lands, where they meet Gilda, a cool Viking adventurer, and life changes for ever...
Minton makes his first appearance in The Hottest Boy Who Ever Lived and then stars in all three Minton Goes! books.

Review: Hector is too hot to handle so he lives near a volcano. He's desperately lonely and one night there is a storm that sends him to the Vikings. Feared at first, the Vikings soon appreciate their talented stranger. Beautifully written, this is one to pass down to children.
