The Lovereading4Kids comment

Interest Age 5-8 No-one knows better than Julia Donaldson how to tell a story for young readers. There are three fairy tales in this appealing collection, each told simply but with a bounce and narrative brio that will keep the pages turning and readers eager to know what happens next. Colour illustrations by Peter Bailey catch all the atmosphere as well as the action and add to the charm. This bright lively collection is a perfect book for children just reading on their own and ready to build up reading stamina. One of Barrington Stoke’s Little Gems list, it has a dyslexia-friendly layout, typeface and paperstock too. ~ Andrea Reece
