About the Author

Terry Jones is perhaps best known as a scriptwriter and member of the Monty Python team. He is a highly successful historian, performer, director and writer for film, radio and television. His books for children have been enormously popular, including Bedtime Stories, The Knight and the Squire, The Lady and the Squire (shortlisted for the Whitbread Children's Book of the Year Award 2001), Nicobobinus (winner of the US Parents' Choice Award) and The Saga of Erik the Viking (winner of the Federation of Children's Book Groups Award). Terry lives in north London (Fitzroy Park). Michael Foreman's artwork has earned him widespread recognition as one of the world's leading illustrators. He has created a vast range of children's books, and has collaborated with Terry Jones on all of his books for children. He also writes and illustrates his own books, including War Boy and War Game, winners respectively of the Kate Greenaway Medal and the Smarties Book Prize, and After the War Was Over. Michael lives in London (Putney) and St Ives. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Terry Jones and Michael Foreman know how to write a fairy tale book. Marvellous stories and beautiful drawings. A must for the children's room

I have enjoyed these stories, and so have the many, many classes of primary school children I have read them to over the last dozen or so years.
Many have messages about life that we could all learn from, and all are entertaining and can fill a whole lesson or be squeezed into 10-15 minute slots.
Beautiful illustrations too.
