The Lovereading4Kids comment
A familiarity with fairy tales is useful to enjoy this charming little book to the full. Lucy is reading to her dog Mr Barker but he’s not paying attention, in fact he’s soon off out through the window into – whose house could it be? There’s a broken chair, three bowls of porridge and a little golden-haired girl tucking in … Most readers will guess of course that this house belongs to the three bears, and when Lucy spots them coming she and her friends slip out through another little door to find themselves in the straw house with the three little pigs. From there they visit the Giant’s house, Sleeping Beauty’s castle and run past the gingerbread house in the forest! Jessica Alhberg has her mother Janet’s gift for creating cosy scenes full of detail as well as her father’s wit. Children will love the doll’s house sensation of peeping through the little doors too. ~ Andrea Reece
Fairytales for Mr Barker by Jessica Ahlberg
Peep through the holes in this delightful fairytale adventure. Once upon a time, there was a troll, says Lucy. But Mr Barker isn't listening. He's off on his own fairytale adventure. Who will he and Lucy meet and will their story end happily ever after?
A beautifully illustrated peep-through story book from Jessica Ahlberg, daughter of Allan and Janet Ahlberg - creators of the classic The Jolly Postman. The charming details from favourite fairytales will delight children again and again and make this a book to treasure.
