The Deep Dark Wood by Algy Craig Hall

This is the deep dark wood. Everyone knows it's no place to go for a stroll. There are witches and trolls and giants everywhere, not to mention the Big Bad Wolf! Wait a minute! What's that sweet little girl doing in the deep dark wood? Doesn't she know it's DANGEROUS here? The Big Bad Wolf will gobble her up for his lunch!

The Big Bad Wolf is about to get a big, bad surprise...A fearsomely funny mixed-up fairytale with an unexpected twist!

Reviews

Takes a well worn premise and reinvigorates it, executing it with imagination and flair. A real delight. Peters Gazette
