This title offers eight exciting picture stories for little ones. Best-loved fairy tales retold for younger readers in simple words and cute pictures. The stories include The Princess and the Pea , Hansel and Gretel , The Twelve Dancing Princesses , Rapunzel , The Snow Queen , The Ugly Duckling , Rumpelstiltskin , and Beauty and the Beast . Special indented windows on the front cover introduce all the main characters. A shiny foil finish on every page adds to the appeal. Perfect for sharing with little ones, aged 2 to 7, who will enjoy helping to tell the stories themselves. Young children will love these charming retellings of classic stories. In The Princess and the Pea , a queen has a clever way to tell whether a girl is a real princess. Hansel and Gretel fall victim to a witch who lives in a house made from cake and candy, but they manage to turn the tables on her. Rapunzel is locked away at the top of a tower, but her long hair comes in useful when a handsome prince arrives. In The Snow Queen , young Kay encounters a beautiful woman whose heart is as cold as ice, but the love of his sister Gerda saves the day. The Ugly Duckling is teased by the other farmyard animals, but he has the last laugh when he grows up...These and other tales are all delightfully illustrated by Jo Parry.

At @HHSHaringey we love @lovereading4kids because our pupils can practice reviewing & get free upcoming books before anyone else!

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

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.
