Synopsis

Fairytale Frankie and the Tricky Witch by Greg Gormley

Beneath this glitter-tastic cover is a page-turning hide-and-seek adventure full of favourite fairytale characters from princesses to unicorns to knights, with a magically funny and reassuring twist at the end. Fairytale Frankie is a fearless tomboy who wakes up one morning to find a princess hiding under her bed and a frog in the cornflakes . . . all the characters appear to be hiding from a baddie and Frankie is determined to keep them safe. This funny, fast-paced story is a visual feast - a real treat from one of the most exciting contemporary artists working today, illustrator of the much-loved top seller Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam.Superbly imaginative and wonderfully illustrated with joy and verve - Parents in Touch

Reviews

This is a humorous story with lots of child appeal, and attractive illustrations that work well. What I particularly like about this story was its subversion of stereotypes -- not only is the witch perfectly nice and friendly, but Frankie is a girl who wears dungarees and the Brave Knight certainly isn't * School Librarian * A fun-filled caper full of fairytale characters with fabulous illustrations and lots to spot on every page, and a magical twist at the end to boot * Aldershot News & Mail * A fun-filled caper full of fairytale characters with fabulous illustrations and lots to spot on every page, and a magical twist at the end to boot. * Surrey Advertiser, Aldershot News & Mail, Buckinghamshire Advertiser & Examiner * This is the perfect antidote to a profusion of pinkness * WRD * A storytime favourite that we've also had great feedback on from parents * The Alligator's Mouth Bookshop * Superbly imaginative and wonderfully illustrated with joy and verve -- Sarah Brew * Parents in Touch *
