The Lovereading4Kids comment
An inventive, topsy turvy back-to-front story of fairytale characters and what they did… previously. From Goldilocks and Cinderella to Jack and the Gingerbread Man you’ll find a treat instore from start to finish. Both funny and touching no child or parent will fail to be entranced.
