Littlenose lives long, long ago, when fierce wild animals roam the land, and it is very cold. His home is a cave, his clothes are made of fur and his pet is a woolly mammoth called Two-Eyes.
Littlenose wants to be a magician, pulling rabbits out of a fur hat, turning twigs into flowers and making things disappear. The Doctor can do it. Why can't he? But magic doesn't come easily to Littlenose, who seems to conjure up chaos without trying . . .
