The Lovereading4Kids comment

A stylish and witty re-telling of this popular classic tale matched by equally fresh feeling illustrations which are a clever blend of timelessness and modernity. It’s a story full of cruelty which both the storyteller and the illustrator relish while also making sure there is a satisfyingly happy ending. The addition of a CD read by award winning actress Imelda Staunton adds a very special dimension to the whole package.
