Reviews

A modern setting, plenty of humour (and some real rhyming gems), diverse characters and positive gender roles mix with intertextual references to create a combination which will delight young fairytale fans while appeasing parents who might be concerned about the old-fashioned values of traditional tales. Library Mice This is a clever series - each time you re-read it with your child (or with a class) they will pick up something fresh; a reference to yet another fairytale. The clever and witty writing is set off excellently by the illustrations which bring a contemporary feel to the old favourites. Parents in Touch It is amusing, witty, very colourful with lots of flitter, and always interesting to have a new spin on a traditional fairy tale. The School Librarian

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

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!
