Synopsis

Climbing Rosa by Shelley Fowles

Outside the King's palace stands an enormous tree, its top hidden by clouds. No one has ever climbed to the top or collected any of its seeds. Rosa's stepmother and stepsister Irma are always calling Rosa a monkey because she can climb anything, from drainpipes to trees. So when the King proclaims that whoever brings down some seeds from the tree-top shall marry his son, Rosa decides to make her step-family laugh on the other side of their faces...Shelley Fowles' gloriously funny adaptation of a traditional Hungarian folk tale is accompanied by illustrations in the colourful, sophisticated-naive style which she has made her own.
