Former Children’s Laureate Michael Rosen provides some solutions to those important dilemmas facing the best-loved characters from fairy stories in this robust open-the-flap book. The wise fairy godmother has sound advice for the Three Little Pigs about how to stay safe, kind words for the Giant about how to make Jack want to stay and play, and a hot tip for the Gingerbread Man on how to stop himself being a tempting morsel for all who meet him. Nick Sharratt’s bold illustrations and excellent flaps reveal the information entertainingly.

Synopsis

Dear Fairy Godmother by Michael Rosen, Nick Sharratt

Deep in the enchanted forest, the fairy tale creatures all have problems. Luckily they can call on the ultimate agony aunt - Dear Fairy Godmother! A sequel to Dear Mother Goose , this is a hilarious collection of fairy stories with a difference. All the best-loved fairy-tale characters are here and they all have a different problem, from the pesky girl who keeps eating little bear's porridge, to Pinocchio's mendacious habits, to the wolf who just won't leave Little Red Riding Hood alone. Along with their letters asking for advice comes the scene with the problem - then lift the flap and see Fairy Godmother's ingenious solutions to their predicaments. Wittily illustrated by Nick Sharatt, with a very funny text from Michael Rosen, this is a novelty book full of unexpected solutions - and a party at the end!
