The Lovereading4Kids comment

Interest Age 8-12 Reading Age 8+ Poor Sleeping Beauty! Everyone knows she was cursed by the wicked fairy out of spite because she wasn’t invited to the christening and so fell asleep for 100 years. But it all turns out to have been a terrible mistake! Here, in a witty and very different account, the 13th Fairy tells how that was never meant to happen! Kaye Umansky’s makes excellent fun with a traditional tale.

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 8+

Synopsis

The 13th Fairy by Kaye Umansky

Grimbleshanks just wanted to be invited to the Royal Christening. All the other fairies had been invited. But not her - just because she didn't like pink or frills or dancing on her tip-toes. Well, she would show them ...with a curse! Sleeping Beauty as you've never read it before.

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 8+

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
