5.0 out of 5 stars Great bedtime read 2 Jan 2006
It's great to have a compliation set of these three stories, although you may have to read all of them at once.
You just can't beat Nick Sharatt and these three traditional stories have been well told in rhyme for the youngest to enjoy but the older ones too. The flaps are study and urge you to open them, and the modern illustrations are a delight.

4.0 out of 5 stars recommended buy 7 Sep 2009
my daughter is 2 1/2 years old and absolutely loves this book and the other lift-the-flap tales. She has always had a bedtime ritual of a story before lights out but my husband and I are always conned into reading all 3 stories. great illustrations and as there are plenty of flaps to lift, keeps my daughters interest.

This book is returned to again and again by my children. The heroines are updated, and modern. The text rhymes, so kids can anticipate the end of the sentence. There are flaps on every double page lay out, which my kids adore. We cannot turn over until all flaps have been opened! For bedtime reading this fab, as the stories are just the right length. You can read all 3 out loud without losing your voice!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely illustrations and fun 10 Sep 2013
By Susie
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
We loved the three pigs book written by the same team so we thought we'd give this triple fairy tail book a go. My 3 year old loves all the flaps. The only thing I would say against this book is that it feels a little strange to be reading an 'alternative' 'modern' version of a fairy tale when my daughter doesn't even know the originals.

2.0 out of 5 stars Pretty badly told, the jokes aren't great 7 Mar 2012
Is your child obsessed with lift the flap books? Mine too. And they have a lot of Nick Sharratt illustrated books that they like. I will confess, I'm not that mad on the cartoony look, I prefer something more pretentious and arty, or just beautiful. But I still buy them and am happy if my kids like them.

The kids would give these a rating of good, I think. There's been an average number of requests to read them. They're nice and short (I always give a thumbs up to very short books at bedtime!). But they are not a pleasure to read. The scansion is awkward and even shoddy, the words tumble out of order just to make a rhyme, and I find most things about every one of the three stories very irritating. I'd rather have a grittier telling of fairy tales with feet being cut up in Cinderella and Red Riding Hood and her granny being eaten, but I'm okay with cutesying up if it's fun and well written. These really aren't either. Because of the rhyme format, you miss out on some fairly important parts of the story, too, especially with Cinderella, and you don't get the lovely well-worn repetitions (Who's Been Eating My Porridge? All The Better To Eat You With) that you get in more traditional versions - there's a nod towards them, but without the full repetition the effect is damaged.

This is a long review. In short, 3 stars from kids, 1 star from me, average of 2 stars. But they do have a lot of flaps!

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Bought this as it looked fantastic for the price with the 3 books in 1, we already had Three Little Pigs and Billy Goats Gruff by same author and weren't disappointed with this purchase. Absolutely love it, classic stories but in a modern, fun way and with lift the flap pages for the kids to get involved - brilliant book, my little boy (almost 3) loves it
