The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for the prestigious 2008 Greenway. A wonderfully lyrical story about the search for the happy endings that are needed to make the perfect story. Beautiful illustrations bring the story to life.
Lost Happy Endings by Carol Ann Duffy
Meant for children of all ages, this is a magical tale about what happens when, one night, a wicked witch steals the happy endings to bedtime stories. It is up to Jub, the keeper of the happy endings, to save the day and ensure sweet dreams everywhere.
'A marriage made in picture book heaven - Duffy's lyrical prose matched with Jane Ray's rich, magical illustrations'
'This evocative story has particularly beautiful illustrations'
