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. Wittily illustrated by Nick Sharratt, with a very funny text from Michael Rosen, this is a novelty book full of unexpected solutions - and a party at the end! The simple lift-the-flap novelty elements are put to brilliant effect.

Synopsis

Dear Fairy Godmother by Michael Rosen

Deep in the enchanted forest, the fairy tale creatures all have problems. Luckily they can call on the ultimate agony aunt - Dear Fairy Godmother! 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!
