Fairytale Frankie and the Tricky Witch Synopsis

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.

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

Fairytale Frankie and the Tricky Witch Press 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 *
